Hops Quality Analysis

We want to thank everyone for supporting the UVM Hop Quality Testing Laboratory! We have received many samples over the last few weeks and have noticed that many are above the recommended 8 – 10% moisture for storage. Unfortunately, it is very difficult to process and analyze hop samples that exceed these moisture levels. Please make sure all samples sent are dried properly and are not more than 8-10% moisture as we will not be able to conduct the testing.

At this time, we have one test available for Brewing Values (BV’s) which determines Alpha acids, Beta acids and Hop Storage Index (HSI). Click here for the Hops Analysis Submission Form to submit a sample.
