This hop has a very fine aroma and is appropriately called the king of the English hops. There is simply no better hop for an original IPA or a traditional English Bitter. Often used for late hopping, but also suitable as bittering hop due to the higher alpha-acid content. There are many varieties of Goldings with the best flavour historically coming from East Kent. The exact alpha acid content is indicated on every package.
Hop pellets are destalked ground hops pressed into little pellets. Use about 10 % less than when using hop cones with a similar alpha level. Hop pellets can be preserved longer and are usually available for a longer period of time during the course of the season.
All our hops are packed in special vacuum packages for optimal storage life and placed in a cold storage room at 5 °C. The availability and alpha acid content strongly depend on the harvest.
