A high Alpha Acid English hop, providing high bittering rates at a competitive price
Sorry, this item is currently out of stock, but will be added to our next order from this supplier.
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.
