Magnum T-90 Hop Pellets - 1 lb
German Magnum T90 Hop Pellets, 1 pound sealed bulkpackage
Until very recently, Magnum (Hallertaur Magnum) was the most popular bittering hop in Germany, as well as a widely popular bittering hop in the U.S. Bred at the Hops Research Institute of Hull, Germany, this hop boasts a pedigree of Galena and a German male. Magnum wasn't released until 1993, despite the breeding program and research beginning in 1980.
Magnum is know as a clean, crisp bittering hop, boasting high alpha acids with relatively low cohumulones. While some big breweries like Sierra Nevada have been known to use Magnum for late additions and dry hops as well, it really shines as a bittering hop due to it's ridiculously clean and neutral profile.
Aroma and Flavor
Expect a super clean and neutral bitter profile from Magnum. Because of it's ability to stay neutral and still provide a high quality bittering profile, it's rarely used in late additions or dry hops.

Magnum is by far my favorite bittering hop, and you can see that in a lot of our recipes. It’s like old faithful, and I like to use it as a clean, crisp bittering hop in almost any beer style. It doesn’t do a whole lot as a late addition hop, but it’s my go-to for bitter-balance additions in anything!
