Hop: Celeia


Celeia was bred at the Hop Research Institute in Zalec, Slovenia by Dr. Dragica Kraij from Styrian Golding and an unknown Yugoslavian male hop. Similar to Saaz for quality of aroma but the potential for high yield but not grown widely due to lack of brewer acceptance. Sister to Cerera.

Although very similar in name and character to Styrian Celeia, it seems they are different due to their breeding history.

Did you know?
  • Dwarf variety hops grow shorter in height than traditional varieties but, importantly, produce the same yield. This combination makes harvest easier.
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.
