Fuggle Hop Profile
U.S. Fuggle Hop (Domestic)
Aroma - Alpha Acid: 4.0% - 5.0%

Fuggle Hops found in the U.S. can trace their roots (rhizomes) back to the Fuggle variety discovered in England in 1861. The American variety has different attributes, largely due to climate and soil differences, but perhaps evolution is leading this variety down a different path as well. U.S. Fuggle Hops is an aroma hops with an alpha acid rating for 4.0%-5.5%. The essential oils vary in content compared to the English variety, and this definitely changes the flavor and aroma in beer. It still has the time-honored essence of English Ales, which has mild hoppiness, and a pleasant aroma with essence of herbal, woody, and fruit. U.S. Fuggle is a bit stronger than the English variety for better or for worse. U.S. Fuggle Hops is a low yielding plant consisting of small and moderately compact cones. It performs fairly well in its resistance to disease and fungus. It can be used anywhere in the brewing process from the kettle to dry hop, and is most commonly associated with English style ales.
