Hop: Yakima Cluster


Yakima Cluster was bred from Late Cluster and developed from Pacific Coast Cluster in Yakima Valley in the 1950s by the Irrigated Agriculture Research and Extension Center, Prosser, Washington. Similar to Early Cluster and non-distinguishable from other hops in the Cluster family, it is usually just called "Cluster".

Recently added hops
  • Storage: is based on the percentage of alpha acids remaining after 6 months at 20*F.
  • Oil composition percetages are based on the total percentage of oil in the hop. Example: 10 - 20% means that for the specific oil it is 10 - 20% of the overall oil make up.
