American cross between Petham Golding and a USDA-selected male. Slightly spicy and very piney. Can be used as bittering hop in all beers and specifically in pale ale, IPA, stout, porter, lagers. Alpha acid content: 10-14%. The exact alpha acid content is indicated on every package.
Hop pellets are destalked ground hops pressed into little pellets. Use about 10 % less than when using hop cones with a similar alpha level. Hop pellets can be preserved longer and are usually available for a longer period of time during the course of the season.
All our hops are packed in special vacuum packages for optimal storage life and placed in a cold storage room at 5 °C. The availability and alpha acid content strongly depend on the harvest.
