German Hallertau T-90 Hop Pellets - 1 lb
German Hallertau Mittelfruh T90 Hop Pellets, 2 oz sealed package
Grown in the Hallertau region of Bavaria, Hallertau is known for being one of the world's finest flavor and aroma hops. This is one of the original Noble Hop varieties, and has been used as such for over a century.
Although traditionally used for both clean bittering and aroma, Hallertau shines more as an aroma and flavor addition hop because of generally low alpha acid content. Ideal for all traditional beer styles. Because of lower cohumulone content, Hallertau delivers a very clean bittering profile.
