Sorry, this item is currently out of stock, but will be added to our next order from this supplier.
A Czech hop which is suitable for all Pilsners and lagers. It is noted for its earthy/herbal aroma and its mild bittering properties.
Whilst Saaz hops are usually used in Pilsner and lager recipes and feature prominently in Dave Line's recipes for Stella Artois, Pilsner Urquell and Kronenbourg, they are also used as the late boil hops in Graham Wheeler's recipe for Fullers Discovery.
Its typical alpha acid levels are 3.0-4.5% depending on the harvest, so you may need to adjust the amounts used in your recipe to ensure that you match the target EBU value.
