Gday All

Has anyone heard and have got much info on these particualr hops?

All i know is is that it was a german hop... and is related to the tettnanger and saazer hops

The reason i ask this as i am currently growing it and just want to know basically what style of beers this hop could be used for... i am thinking it would be rather good for a pilsner or even maybe lagering hop

Any info on this particular hop you guys and gals know about it would be much appreciated

cheers and beers

The Fresh Hops site always has interesting information and also gear to buy.

Make sure that if you decide to buy hops from overseas, get pellets, not cones. AQIS will take your cones away, or charge you an arm and a leg to treat them. Don't try and order rhizomes, AQIS will take them and charge you for destroying them.
