Hop Analysis Services
Harvest is upon us and Alpha Analytics® is accepting hops for testing!
Through Alpha Analytics, we offer an extensive array of hop testing services including individual tests and packages for brewing values, (alpha, beta and Hop Storage Index), essential oils (% oil content and basic GC profile) and moisture/dry matter analysis.

Dried Hops: 200 grams – Collect a representative sample from the lot of interest, package the sample in a zip-lock bag (or vacuum pack) and place on a leak-proof cold pack.
Fresh Picked, Green Hops: 200 grams – Collect a representative sample from the lot of interest, package the sample in a zip-lock bag leaving room for the hops to breathe, and place on a leak-proof cold pack.
*Green hops deteriorate very quickly during transit. If we are not testing dry-matter to determine harvest timing, and you are not in the Yakima Valley, you may get better results if you dry your hops. Hops should be dried to 8-12% moisture using a food dehydrator or similar method.
*All samples should be shipped overnight for arrival at Alpha Analytics, Monday-Friday.
