    Hi all,

    ive just bought 100g of these at a discount for £1.00.

    Does anybody have a decent recipe or style of beer for which I could use these for?

    I don't mind any style will be made.

    Thanks

    Hallertau what? It’s the second part to the name that will tell you weather they are good or great and what to use them on.

    I've used hallertau hersbrucker in pale ales, IPA, blonde and golden ales... Its an aroma hop mostly used in German lagers, but I like it in pale coloured ales, added in last 10 to 5 minutes of boiling.

    With low alpha acids and low cohumulone, it exhibits a pleasant aroma with a balanced, fruity, spicy and floral character. It has commonly been used in German lagers, however this variety is now making its way into some fine English cask ales. ​

    I once used these for dry hopping, and the aroma and taste were terrific.

    Just to help it could be either of these three 1) Mittelfrüh, 2) Blanc, 3) Hersbrucker all subtly different.,

    If they are just labelled 'Hallertau' without any 2nd part, they are probably 'Mittlefrüh'.... I think.

    I may be retracting this post after a quick Google... aunsure....

    1 quid... don't think it matters which one it is... Whatever, they will make a good aroma hop.

    I've used 50g of Hersbrucker & 50g of Saaz @ 5 mins in an IPA... Was lovely :D

    If they are labelled just Hallertau, they could well be the American grown noble hop from Yakimachiefhops. If they are of German origin, as pointed out, the Hallertau general denotes that they are from the Hallertau region and will be accompanied by a variety name. Any indication of the country of origin? Also the Alpha Acid value may indicate what variety they are. Screenshot_20181204-121315.png
