Hop Processing Best
Gorst Valley Hops has authored a 101-page Best Practices
Guide in conjunction with the FDA and WI DATCP. This
manual provides guidance on proper quality control procedures
and food processing regulations for hop processing. It is our
hope that both brewers and processors will use this manual as
the minimum standard for food safety and quality concerns.
The entire guide is free to download and review, and can
be found at
this link. Read the press release summary here.
