There's a typo: pubilc->public, but apart from that, thanks for this useful snippet!

SHA1 implements IDisposable so you should use an using

            using (var sha1 = SHA1.Create())
            {
                byte[] hashBytes = sha1.ComputeHash(bytes);

                return HexStringFromBytes(hashBytes);
            }

If it's going to be called multiple times, it would be more efficient if you pull out the string builder to a static readonly field
