A high Alpha Acid English hop, providing high bittering rates at a competitive price
4 in stock.
An English hop, grown mainly in Kent and Sussex, which has a high Alpha Acid content and provides good bittering qualities at a competitive price as you need to use proportionally less of it than, for example, a Goldings, WGV or Bramling Cross, to achieve the same level of bitterness.
It tends to be a bit harsh for uses as a late boil aroma hop, but can be used as a dry hop addition in the cask. (The best dry hopping results tend be achieved if using pellets rather than cones).
Its typical alpha acid levels are 9.5-11.5% 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.
