Description

German Tettnang T90 Hop Pellets, 2 oz sealed package

Tettnang or Tettnanger hops are the namesake of a town near Germany's southern border, and is one of the four 'noble' hop varieties used and known worldwide.  Originally planted in 1844, now the hops produced in the Tettnang region make up around 5% of the total hops grown in Germany, and the hop fields are large enough to be seen from space.  

Usage

Tettnang hops have traditionally been used for both bittering additions and aroma additions, and this variety shines well for both.  Expect a clean and lightly spicy characteristic from bittering additions due to moderately low cohumulone levels, and gentle spice and floral characteristics from late and dry hop additions.

Aroma and Flavor

The classically noble characteristics of Tettnang shine through in later additions, adding mild fruity characteristics and distinct spice, not unlike Czech Saaz, Tettnange closest substitute.  These lighter flavors are balanced with mildly herbal and subtle earthy qualities.
