Hop: Hokitika®

Description

Hokitika® is of European origin but was first grown in New Zealand in 1882. The hop originated from a hop garden that was started in the 1880's by the brewery principal, WCJ Kortegast, at Kortegast's Brewery at Gibson Quay, on the Hokitika River. Those gardens had been growing wildly for 136 years.

Explanations
  • 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.
