Fuggle US Hops

Another great hop grown in the Northwest… not originally from there, just grown there… the hop is actually from England and was selected by Mr. Richard Fuggle in 1861… some say in 1875… not sure who is keeping track…

Anyways…

This hop is known primarily for its aromatic properties which include some mild, woody (earthy) and fruity aromas. Use them towards the end of the boil or for dry hopping…

These hops will retain up to 60 to 65% of alpha acids after 6 months of storage at 70 F, so you can buy some in bulk, just don’t plan on storing them long-term…

If you are looking for rhizomes to plant your own, these hops are resistant to downy mildew and not too sensitive to insects… in other words, easy to grow…

Fuggle US Hops Alpha Acid %

4 – 5.5%

Fuggle US Hops Beta Acid %

1.5 – 2%

Fuggle US Hops Oil Content

0.7 – 1.2 mls/100 grams

Fuggle US Hops Cohumulone %

25 – 32%

This hop is kind of a hybrid when it comes to aromas since it has a mix of English and US characteristics… so beer recipes that use this variety can range from English-style beers (ales) and American ales…

You can substitute this hop with Fuggle UK hops, Willamette hops, Styrian Golding hops, or US Tettnanger hops… Willamette is essentially a Fuggle with 3 times as many chromosomes… Styrian Golding is essentially just a Fuggle hop, but it is marketed under Styrian Golding in Slovenia… the difference between some of these hops and the US version is that the US variety is fruity while the rest are mostly spicy…
