Jeff Miller points out that chopping up the hops will result in
more bitterness in the beer (same boiling times). This is
consistent with the fact that the %AA utilization is about 15%
greater for hop pellets than whole hops for equal boiling times.
That is 10 HBU of pellets is equivalent to about 11.5 HBU of
whole hops.
