    Durden Park - Old British Beers

    Hi An Ankoù , Sorry mate but that's dead wrong , you'd be lucky to get a 5 % a/a hop in the 19 Th century in the UK Domestic industry, mostly at around up to 4 % on recent crops with 5 + year olds being as low as 0.5 % a/a especially when considering age , storeage; Useage rate & purpose etc...
