Comet being an older hop that is well known for its “wild American” flavour, and often used in American-style lagers. Comet’s flavour profile rests heavily on a strong accent of grapefruit. It does feature solid bittering capabilities and traditionally brewers considered it best suited as a bittering hop. Recently however, there has been a surge in its use as a dry-hop in ales and IPA’s.
This US hop imparts zesty grapefruit, lemon and orange. Good balance between grassy and citrus.
Columbus and Centennial both carry wonderful bittering characteristics making them the perfect substitute for Comet.
We contract and source our hops from the finest merchants and farms around the world, ensuring you get the chance to brew with the same high quality product that professional breweries use.
Using mylar bags which prevent light degradation of the hops, flushing the bags with nitrogen to remove oxygen and cold storage of them until ordered by you, ensures the hops are as fresh as possible.
