Default Hop pellets are dust.

Alrighty, while I'm awaiting my water to boil, I was getting my first dose of hops ready for my ipa. Opened up my package of nugget pellets, only to find they are nearly completely crushed into a powder.

Should I still put them in, or should I pitch them and just be an ounce short?

Yeah, they're just going to break up anyway when you toss them into the boil. There are much more important things to worry about... the upcoming zombie apocalypse, for instance.

Thank god, that was the answer I was hoping for.

and the zombie apocalypse is coming? why didn't anybody warn me sooner. I might have to brew a second batch today to hold me over for a while.

Pellet hops are crushed to dust and then compressed into pellets.. It's their natural form.

I know you might be tempted to snort a line of that hoppy dust... but don't. Trust me.

Yeah, I think i accidently inhaled some when I took a good whiff of them, because they smell delicious.

My nose burned for about half an hour.
