Nelson Sauvin Hops - 1 oz


Nelson Sauvin hops bear the name of their closest aroma descriptor, Sauvignon Blanc grapes - ""crushed gooseberry"" is the term most commonly used. Alpha acids in the low double digits mean they are a great dual-purpose hop, with low cohumulone, good oil content, and an overall uniqueness that is taking many brewers by surprise. Underlying notes of distinctive New Zealand spiciness: black pepper, mace, and allspice are common. Commercially, Nelson has been used in everything from pale lagers and pale ales to Belgian ales and Weizenbock.
