Hop: Green Bullet

Hops Catalog


Green Bullet was bred by the New Zealand Hop Research Committee to be resistant to Black Root Rot disease, a disease that decimated hops in the 1940s in New Zealand. Released for commercial use in 1972, Green Bullet was originally known as Brand 65-3-82. Acreage is on a decline over the past 10 years.

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