Hop Bramling Cross (UK) in pellets T90 in 5 kg bag - Bramling Cross is often used as a general purpose kettle hop for a smallish proportion of the
hop grist. However, the variety has also of late been used to provide special fruity, blackcurrant
and lemon notes in traditional brews, especially in Christmas ales. If used as a late hop or dry
hop, the effect on the final beer flavour can be very interesting. This is an under-appreciated
hop which can give the brewer considerable scope for experiment with specialty or new beers.
