Nugget Hop - 1 lb
The alpha monster variety that makes an excellent bittering hop, Nugget is an ever-popular option for commercial and home brewers alike. Thanks to its clean and balanced flavour profile, low beta acid and co-humulone levels, Nugget works wonders in virtually any beer style when used at early bittering stages.
Whether it’s a balanced Pilsner, malt-forward Bock, or a hop-packed Double IPA, Nugget delivers the clean and refreshing bitterness appropriate in any style, leaving room for malt flavours and aroma hop varieties. Can also be used in late additions resulting in a mild herbal aroma.
|Description:||Nugget is one of the most popular hop varieties when it comes to bittering, especially when brewing hop-forward IPAs and Pale Ales. This is mainly due to the fact that the hop boasts one of the highest alpha acid contents, while imparting a very balanced and neutral bittering flavour.
When added early in the boil, Nugget lends a grassy, hoppy character that goes well in virtually any beer style, while also minimizing wort loss due to excessive trub after the boil. You can also use Nugget for aroma, especially when combined with more aroma-centered varieties.
