About this Hop
Bramling cross is a wonderful aromatic “American-style” hop. It has high flavour intensity and works well as late copper, hop-back or dry hop addition and is a good experimental hop for brewers as a late or dry hop.
Released in 1951 by Wye College in the UK from a cross made in 1927, between Bramling (a traditional English Golding variety) and a male seedling of the Manitoban (Canadian) wild hop. It is wilt tolerant.
