2018 Hop-Testing Price Guide


As prices of chemical solvents and scientific equipment continue to rise, we continue to do our best to hold the line on prices for our growers. Though we have had to increase our single-sample prices, you will find that the multi-sample prices have remained about the same, saving you money when you send in more than one sample at a time.

Sample sizes to send us for testing are given in volume measurements for easier on-farm or at-home measurements. One hundred 'wet' cones will take up almost the same volume as one hundred dry cones of the same variety, contain nearly the same amount of bittering acids, essential oils and dry-matter, but weigh three to four times as much. Our requested sample sizes are based on experience and provide us with enough sample to properly perform the test(s) and leave enough for a 'back-up' test, if needed.

More information about the tests can be found by following the links in the left-most column.

(Discounted pricing applies to multiple samples received in a single shipment.)
