This traditional German bittering hop was first bred at Wye College from a cross between Brewer’s Gold and Canterbury Golding. Released in the 1940s, this varietal is now available in regional spin-offs, including a very similar U.S. grown Northern Brewer. It is currently used as a true dual purpose hop, offering both well-rounded bitterness and a full, woodsy aroma of pine, herbs and mint.
The alpha acid range is generally between 8% to 10%, and can be used to bitter most ales as well as some lagers. If you need a to swap out Northern Brewer pellet or whole hops, try using Chinook, Magnum, or Galena. Give Northern Brewer a try by grabbing a bottle of just about any variety from Anchor Steam Brewing Co.
All hops are packaged in oxygen, light and moisture barrier bags. They are purged with nitrogen and stored cold to optimize freshness. Resealable packages feature a tear notch and zipper.
