Southern Cross Hops

Quick Overview

Southern cross hop's aroma is characterised by a heady mix of lemon peel and pine needles layered beneath the clean spiciness which typifies this New Zealand alpha selection. The Southern Cross has an excellent essential oil profile and low Cohumulone while producing consistent levels of Alpha acid. Used for first addition bittering this hop has no pretence at substitution for noble type.


A kettle variety of the highest order Southern Cross imparts a soft bitterness with a subtle resinous quality. The essential oil component is such that it can deliver a delicate balance of citrus and spice when added toward the end of boil. Generally selected for its consistency in mainstream Lagers this hop has also ventured into the craft market as a reliable Brewpub mainstay.

Details

Hops are generally divided into three categories:

BITTERING HOPS
- are high in alpha acids which provide bitterness
- do not usually impart much flavour or aroma but do have their own characteristic bitterness
- are usually added to the boil for at least one hour

AROMA HOPS
- are used to enhance the flavour and bouquet of the beer
- are usually low in alpha acids but high in essential oils
- can be added to the wort about 10 minutes before the end of the boil
- can be added to the wort after boiling to allow the hop aroma to infuse
- can be used for ‘dry hopping’, which involves adding hops to the beer after it has finished fermenting, e.g. in the keg
- are suitable for heavily hopped beers to avoid generating too much bitterness
- ideally, only the freshest, highest quality hops should be used

DUAL PURPOSE HOPS
- high in alpha acids and can impart a pleasant aroma
- can be used in the boil and as late addition hops
- are not usually suitable for dry hopping
