What’s your favourite hop? Wayne:Cascade, I think it is a true classic and creates great beers. I would be extremely sad if we ran out
Fresh hops straight from the bine during the harvest period
Green hops are only available during the harvest period as they are picked from the bine and used, ideally, within 24hrs. The freshest hops allow brewers to craft beers that give completely different characteristics, flavours and aromas.
Cones at harvest have moisture of nearly 80% before they are dried down to below 12% for packing. Therefore we suggest that you increase the addition rate by five to eight times more than you would normally use
Keep an eye out for green hop updates during August, September and October
