Bergamot is adual-purpose hopthat can be used in all hop additions throughout the brewing process.
Bergamot subtly nicknamed "O.A.F." by the brewers in the GLH Brew Group that have crafted incredible first round trial brews with this hop. There is no lack of orange in this hop. You won't need to garnish your beer with an orange slice ever again.
These are the common ranges that we've seen withBergamothops over the years. Each year's crop can yield hops that have slightly different qualities, so these number ranges are based on history.
Alpha Acid % (AA) Alpha acids are the main source of bitterness in beer. Longer boil times will result in isomerization of more alpha acids leading to increased bitterness.Learn more »
Beta Acid %Beta acids are a component of hop resins responsible for contributing volatile aromatic and flavor properties. Beta acids contribute no bitterness.
Alpha-Beta RatioThe ratio of alpha to beta acids dictates the degree to which bitterness fades during aging. 1:1 ratios are common in aroma varieties.
1:1 - 2:1
Co-Humulone as % of AlphaLow cohumulone hops may impart a smoother bitterness when added to the boil as opposed to higher ones that add a sharper bitterness to the final beer.Learn more »
Total Oils (mL/100g)These highly volatile, not very soluble oils are easily boiled off, but add flavor and aroma to the finished beer when added very late in the boil or during fermentation.Learn more »
