About this Hop
With an essential oil that is distinctively different to other British hops, Pilot works well as a bittering or late aroma hop.
Bred at Horticulture Research International (HRI) Wye College in the UK and released in 2001, Pilot is a high yielding hedgerow variety. It has a tolerance to wilt, but is susceptible to both downy and powdery mildews. It has good storage stability.
