Hallertau Tradition is a Hüll bred fine aroma hop coming from Hallertauer Mittlefrüher, Hallertauer Gold, and 15% Saazer. It was bred specifically for fungus and disease resistance which was quite successful. Higher alpha acids for an aroma hop (5-7%) combined with low cohumulone and higher myrcene contribute to a wonderfully earthy, grassy vibe and a nose of nectar fruits. However, it is best used late in the boil, or for dry hopping since its humulene content dissipates rapidly when heated. Excellent resistance to wilt and mildew, moderate storage stability, moderate vigor but very good yield potential.

Commonly used in:
Origin: German
Storage: Retains 65%-70% alpha acid after 6 months storage at 20 degrees C
