Congratulations on a good harvest of your hops (enough to want a pelletizer!)

Here in the states, you will be looking for a Pellet Mill and everyone would have one if they were cheap!

Sorry I haven't researched any closer to you-- perhaps you can find a sharing situation with a farmer.

Not to complicate things any further for this fellow but doesn't the processing need to be at sub zero temperatures so the pellet machine doesn't heat up and degrade the hop oils during the process?

I have a feeling our Columbian friend is going to be pretty popular around here for the next couple years...maybe if we were smart we would chip in for a pelletizer and a super cold room for him.

Anybody know what his "lufsdiacort" hops taste/smell like?

Wonder what the barriers to importation would be for an agricultural product like this? Some sort of quarantine, some sort of USDA inspection/certification? I'll bet Alexis Scarlett knows.....

Hey--

The nightmare for our Columbian friend is that ag products coming to America no longer belong with USDA but dumdumpdumdum- Homeland Security. So small producers face obstacles beyond reason. Like small producers here waiting for workers. . .I could go on to inflammatory about political economic and social barriers to small producers but discretion is the better part of valor I hear

That's all it takes to be popular? Boy have I been misinformed!

Actually within 45 miles of Denver there are small hopyards and they too would love a pellet mill and distribution network!

And within Colorado's borders there are at least a dozen wanna be hops producers that would welcome the same! Everyone gets to SHRHOPS point with hops but without capitalization for that beautiful pellet mill (with counter flow chiller incorporated) so it sits there!

SHRHOPS--

Que aroma? What smell?

Que sabor? What taste?

Es lupolo mixto e lupolo amargo e amoricato?
Bittering or aroma hops or mixed use?
