Wet Hops

Wet hops come and go so quickly, if you’re not paying attention you’ll miss the opportunity to brew with them.

If you’re not familiar, wet hops are the result of an end of summer/early fall harvest. To be a ‘wet hopped’ beer, one must use fresh picked hops within 24-hours of harvest and send them straight to the brewery to begin the beer making process. Further explanation can be found here.

With HopsHouse, you’re no longer limited by a once-yearly harvest or by price and distance.

As with other hydroponically grown plants and produce, with the correct nutrients, hops retain their flavor and aromas the same as field-grown bines. Growing in a controlled agriculture environment (CEA) allows growers and breweries the opportunity to produce more wet hops and/or at various times throughout the year.
