Saaz (CZ) Whole Hops


Saaz (CZ) Whole Hops

Known for its noble aromas and herbal character, it is one of the four original noble hops. It is an aroma hop, but can add a delicate bitterness when used as an early addition.

The elevated polyphenol content of Saaz aids in abating oxidation, giving beer brewed with this hop a notably longer shelf life.

It's a great choice in the following Beer Styles: Lager, Pilsner

Alpha Acid %: 2.5-4.5%

Beta Acid %: 4-6%

 A good substitute for this hop would be Saaz (US), Sterling, Lubelska-Pulawy, Moteuka, Centennial, Amarillo.
