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. Alpha acid content: 4-6.5%. 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.
