Hops List

Styrian Golding
Sudbury
Sun
Sun has herbal overtones, closer to Galena. Primary use will be for extraction, but some
brewers are using as early kettle hops. Fortunately proved to be resistant to powdery mildew.
Sunbeam
Grown mostly for ornamental purposes, with notable yellow leaves.
Super Alpha
Super Alpha was released in 1976, a high alpha triploid variety.
Super Styrians
A group of four varieties, Apolon, Atlas, Ahil and Aurora. The first three are Brewer's Gold
decendants, and the last is Northern Brewer. These hops are not usually sold individually.
None are related to Styrian Goldings.
Symphony
Symphony is a new super high alpha acids variety released from a private company's breeding
program in 1996. Its the first triploid high alpha acids variety in the US. Alpha acids content is
almost 15% and beta acids content averages at about 4.7%. Total oil content is also high and
storage stability is excellent, harvest maturity is medium-late with excellent cone yields
averaging 3.000 Kilos per hectare.
Crop was decimated by the 1997 powdery mildew outbreak, and growers have agreed not to
grown this variety again because it seemed to enhance the spread of the disease throughout
the valley.
Talisman
Replaced by other hops with better brewing and growing characteristics, taken out of
production.
Target
Taurus
Tettnanger
Tillicum
Tillicum is a alpha acid variety with a very high content of beta acids. The variety was

of Galena and a full sister to Chelan and therefore has analytical data similar to both varieties.

acids variety in the US.

A Northern Brewer derivative, is the only bittering variety grown in Japan.
