With optimum freshness to produce the best bitterness rate!
These varieties have high apha acid levels and are best used in small quantities in the copper for the production of beers with a low bitterness.
Their low aromas require them to be used with other, more flavourful hops for the best results.
Our hops arrive continuously in order to maintain peak freshness & optimum contribution.
