Seeds in hops
« on: April 15, 2015, 11:33:44 AM »
I recently bought some Hoptimus Rex whole leaf EKG from Northern Brewer. They were loaded with seeds. Anyone ever see this? Is it a problem?

I have seen it often with British hops, sometimes with American hops, and once with German hops. It is not a problem.

I went to hop bags because seeds from whole hops were jamming the impeller in the march-pump.
