American Chinook Whole Hops
10.4% Ave. Alpha Acid.
Our customers have been asking for organic Chinook hops for a long time, so we are pleased to bring you these fresh from the cool Mountains of Colorado.
Chinook are widely used as a powerful bittering hop because they exhibit a sharp bitterness sought after in big beers like IPA and American Barley wine.
Aroma is piney and herbal with hints of citrus. Can be cloying if overused.
Bred from a cross between Petham Golding and a USDA-selected male.
Substitutions: Brewers Gold, Bullion, Cluster, Galena, Nugget.
