Subject: Plugs vs. pellets
Date: 1992-05-19 21:17:01 GMT

I am considering switching from pellets to plugs, and I have a
couple of questions.
I have heard that plugs are superior to pellets with regard to
aromatic qualities, that they are close to whole hops in this
regard. True or false?
What is the relative utilization rate of plugs versus pellets?
I know pellets yield a slightly higher utilization rate than
whole hops, because they are more resistant to oxidation.
Where do plugs fit in this picture?

I'll post a summary of any responses I recieve.
