Hi All
I used to use this hop 20 odd years ago
Alas it is no longer available in pellet form anywhere and I'm not interested in growing it
Can anyone remember what this hops characteristics are ?
I've only recently started brewing again and I lost all my notes
I cannot find any reference for a substitute for it
It has vanished from hop charts everywhere
Thanks in advance

Not Cluster, although there was a Golden Cluster at one stage, another one for the history books.
There were a bunch of hops breed from Golding, a lot of them had associated names, either Gold- or things like Nugget, Bullion, First Gold, Sovereign...
Its been a long time since I've seen any Vienna Gold but have a vague memory of it being a disease resistant medium alpha dual purpose hop with a lot of Golding like properties (higher Alpha) and a lot of Golding in its family tree. From memory some southern German genes to.

I think Golding would be a good substitute for taste aroma additions, for bittering perhaps one of the other relatives, Northern Brewer, Target (if you cab find any), a bit further away but even something like Willamette should work.
