When pelletized and stored in oxygen-barrier bags at cold temperatures to reduce oxidation, hops can remain in good condition for 3 to 4 years.

  • About Dr. Rudi: New Zealand. Initially called Super Alpha upon its release by HortResearch in 1976, in 2012 this variety was renamed Dr. Rudi in honor of the “father of New Zealand hops.” It is high in cohumulone content, therefore we do not recommend using it for bittering. It's aromatic potential is very unique and was selected in blind smelling by many of our customers for release at our shop. The pine character is resinous and similar to pine sap and lemongrass, while the citrus element can be similar to lime pith. High rates of dry hop use may result in intensely resinous hop flavors, so you may consider blending with other hops if you do not want high pine intensity.
