Sticklebract Hops

NZ

Dual Purpose HOP

 

Applications

Versatile across several styles depending on addition rates but well suited to big ales and imperial beer styles  such as stouts and double IPA’s.

 

Brewing

Sticklebract produces quality beers of assertive bitterness while also displaying fine aroma qualities and character achieved from both late and dry hopping additions. Citrus and pine characters make up a large portion of the oils fraction which become quite pronounced at heightened addition rates. This hop works well in big ales or as a background to imperial styles.

‘A pedigree hop’

 

Selection

Originally selected as a high yielding alpha variety Sticklebract later became a dual purpose mainstay of the New Zealand Brewing Industry. Aroma is characterised by citrus and pine needles which this heirloom hop carries into the brewhouse and the finished product.

Breeding

Sticklebract is the world’s first commercial triploid and highest alpha hop developed by Dr Rudi Robrough  by open pollination  of the New Zealand developed diploid, First Choice. Released in 1972 from the New Zealand  Horticultural Research Centre at Riwaka. (now Plant and Food Reseach).

 

Hops are sold in 100g vacuum sealed bags with specific batch details printed on label. Larger volumes are generally available with a discount for larger volume packs.
