Hops

Hops
Hops are divided into three types - bittering, aroma and dual-purpose - based on the function they serve in the brewing process. Bittering hops are usually high in alpha acids and minimal in essential oil, aroma hops offer an abundance of essential oils with lesser alpha acids, and dual-purpose hops contain both in balanced amounts.

  • Galena US Hop Pellets

    Galena (US) Hop Pellets

    Galena was bred in 1968 from an open pollination of an unknown male with Brewers Gold. Released in 1978, it continues to enjoy success as a multipurpose high-alpha variety. Given its high alpha and crop yield, Galena is most often found as a classic bittering hop, in much the same vein as Nugget and its descendants. But it is sometimes employed as a finishing hop. It has a mild to moderate character, with a surprisingly pleasant tropical citrus quality. Galena can also have a slightly rustic edge which belies its Brewers Gold ancestry. Hop Type: Bittering Origin: United States Alpha Acid: 11.5% Similar Varieties: Columbus, Nugget, Cluster, Chinook Common Styles: American or English-style Ale, IPA
