Pacific Gem™ is a high alpha hop with a pleasant aroma and useful bitterness level of between 13 and 18% alpha acid. Pacific Gem™ is very fruity with a distinct berryfruit aroma that is prized by many brewers.

Developed in New Zealand at the DSIR Research Station, and was released in 1987. Pacific Gem™ has a Triploid alpha type, being the child of Smoothcone, Californian Cluster and Fuggles. It can be substituted for Columbus and Fuggles.

Hop pellets are destalked ground hops pressed into little pellets. Use about 10% less than you would when using leaf hops with a similar alpha level. Hop pellets can be preserved longer and are usually available for a longer period of time during the course of the season.
