Millennium T-90 Hop Pellets - 1 lb
US Millennium T90 Hop Pellets, 1 pound sealed bulk package
Millennium Hops was released in the year 2000, hence the name. They are a direct descendant of Nugget, and were born from a need to have a crop that was more disease resistant and provided better storability while still conserving some of the spicy, earthy and herbal characteristics of their sire.
Millennnium is known for a clean, spicy and gently resinous bittering profile. Due to low-moderate cohumulone levels, the bittering profile fits well with most beer styles. In late additions it can add a not unpleasant resinous, herbal character that works well as a counter balance to brighter hops.
Aroma and Flavor
Expect a clean and resinous bitter profile, with mildly herbaceous qualities and an end result that won't be too harsh. While Millennium isn't the cleanest bittering hop, it shines as a counterbalance to other bright and fruity hops.

Millennium is one of those old school varieties that is just too good to get rid of. It really shines as a bittering hop with a clean and slightly resinous profile and typically low cohumulone levels in lower IBU beers, but not above 20 or 30 IBUS. Above that, it can get a little catty. As an aroma hop, it adds a nice, resinous characteristic that pairs well with brighter tropical and citrusy hops. I’ve always wanted to make a beer with this and Falconer’s Flight, for obvious reasons!
