Styrian Goldings

A Slovenian Hop with a low alpha acid level (4.5% – 6.0%) which offers an aromatic fragrance with a low bitterness. Not to be confused with other Goldings variations, this hop is more like Fuggles.

Fuggles

A British hop with a low alpha acid level (3.5% – 5.5%) which gives a woody\herbal fragrance with low bitterness.

East Kent Goldings

A British hop with a low alpha acid level (4.5% – 6.5%) which gives a floral\honey fragrance with earthiness. Works well when paired with Fuggles and again gives a low level of bitterness
