Admiral

Admiral hops was released for commercial use in 1996 (other sources have it as 1998). It was created from a male Challenger plant and female plant in the Northdown family. It is the first UK hop to have an alpha acid over 15.0%. Works well as a replacement for bittering and aroma.

Bramling Cross

Developed and bred at Wye College by Professor Salmon, Bramling Cross is a cross between Bramling and Manitoban (a wild Canadian hop). It was released in 1951. Referred to as an English hop with an American aroma. Large quantities brings out the fruitiness in the Bramling Cross.

Early Prolific

Early Prolific has an unknown breeding. It is assumed that it was from a mass selection at Wye College, England. May be useful for breeding of aroma hops but no longer grown commercially due to poor growth and yield (similar to Early Promise in this regard).

Northdown

Northdown was bred at Wye College in Kent, England as higher alpha acid alternative to the hops of the time (1970s). A result of breeding Northern Brewer and an unknown German varietal.

Pride of Kent

Pride of Kent was bred from Brewer's Gold and open pollination at Wye College, England by Professor E.S. Salmon. Mother of the popular Australian hop Pride of Ringwood.

Sunshine

Sunshine is an open pollination hop that has a complicated breeding process by Professor E.R. Salmon at Wye College, England, during the 1920s or early 1930s, which may have included some wild American varietals. Sunshine and open pollination breeding made it the mother of Comet.

Tolhurst

Tolhurst was bred by James Tolhurst of Horsmonden, England in the 1880s. No longer grown commercially, it has a high farnesene content but has low yields, poor storage and growth.

Whitbread Golding

Whitebread Golding, a sturdier version of Goldings which is popular in England. First bred in 1911, Whitebread Golding was finally released to the public in 1953. Named for the brewery that owned the farm in which it was developed.

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