Hop: Taiheke®


Taiheke® was bred from Fuggle and an unknown male, which possibly was a cross between Fuggle and Serebrianka. Taiheke® is the first hop commercially bred from USDA-ARS program.

Oil composition and fruitiness make Taiheke® star in late kettle additions and dry hopping.

  • 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.
