Default Plug hops?

Bought some hallertau plug hops yesterday. 1 oz for 7 dollars!?!? I was wondering how you use these. Should i break them up in the boil by hand? Are they more concentrated, is that why they were so expensive? If anyone can shed for me it would be appreciated. Thanks

7$ is expensive! I know there used to be only like 1-2 plug machines in the US but they were never that much more than pellets or whole. I like plugs for flavor/aroma, I think they are almost as good as whole for that purpose.

I break them up and sprinkle them on top of the boiling wort. You don't have to but they take some time to break apart on thier own.
