Yesterday, Hersbrücker Pure hops and Merkur was harvested in Hopvalley. As our Merkur plants were planted this year we only got enough for our own beer experiments. It is a hop with high alfa acid, even higher than Magnum that it is bred out of by Hüll Institute in Germany.
Hersbrücker Pure has got its name from the fact that it has the purest hop-taste. It is categorized as neither bitter or aromatic by the European Commission, but in third category: “Other”. Hersbrücker Pure should not be confused with the classic Hersbrücker hops.
We have also updated our Swedish webstore, where you, if you live in Sweden, can buy hops directly from Hopvalley.
