NEW EXCITING Hops Pellet Making Machinery!!!


We listen and adapt to our customers needs!  After some feedback from customers we have developed some new and exciting equipment for the hops industry - Thanks to our many hop growing customers for all your feedback!



We have developed a new hops mixing system that allows for blending of varieties or pre mixing the same variety prior to grinding 2 - 3 bales at a time.

These mixers can be integrated right after the hops bale breaker or straight from the drying floor...See video above.

BN Hybrid Model: 

Our popular 10 HP Bonsai (BN) Mill has had a face lift! We have rounded off the inside of the feed hopper to prevent material filling the corners we also have added a screener and now our new Pre feed grind and hopper which allows hops customers to grind up to 500lbs at a time and auger feed to the mill line!

Quality pellets start with high quality hops and are processed through high quality equipment!

Hops pellets cascade

Lawson Mills started developing the low temperature grind and pelleting hops mill in 2008 developing a low pressure system that allows growers the ability to create premium brewery quality hops on site.

We offer a variety of hops pelleting solutions for different production requirements see below for a sampling of our hops equipment:

  •  Grinders - We offer Hops grinding and shattering equipment from our 3 -10 HP Hammer mill, or 20 and 30 HP Multigrinder units  capable of handling many 1000's of lbs of hops per hour, all ours grinders come with our specially patented hops screen to prevent loss of lupilin and heat transfer while grinding!
  • Collection systems for the ground hops - we have small barrel collectors, to purpose built collection silos all systems collect the ground material and easy transfer either manually or mechanically to the mill line.
  • All our LM range of Mills include a fines removal and pellet tumbling system that removes waste material and cools the pellets close to ambient temperature. (the fines removed in this process are not wasted - they are returned automatically to the feeder system on the mill to be re-pelleted!)
  • Integrated conveyors and transporting systems built to suit for any type of bagging or storage feed application.

We have various sized mills depending on the output required and the amount of labor our customers are willing to do.

Our small BN line (4hp or 10HP) can be manually fed with ground hops and is ideal for the hobby farmer or small grower (up to 9 acres.) Our LM range of products can go up to 1000+lb/hr of hops pelleting for the larger commercial operations.

Whether you buy small or large the results are the same: premium hops pellets with no heat damage and intact alpha acids and oils.

Our specially designed Hops screen grinds the material to the perfect size for pelleting without generating heat, the lupulin and oils are spread evenly throughout the feedstock for the perfect even pellet.
