This German cross breed of Hallertau Mittelfruh and Spault was released from the Hull Hop Institute in 1991. German Select hops have low acidic levels and an incredibly fragrant floral and fruity aroma that perfectly compliments all types of Lagers. The alpha acid range of just 3% to 6.5% keeps bittering light and minimal so you can really taste the traditional German flavors imparted on your brew. Other regional varietals like Saaz and Tettnanger make reasonable substitutions for German Select hops. All hops are packaged in oxygen, light and moisture barrier bags. They are purged with nitrogen and stored cold to optimize freshness. Resealable packages feature a tear notch and zipper.
