    WGV

    A classic dual-purpose hop for a wide variety of traditional ales.
    SKU: HWGV0044

    Breeding/Development: England. Selected in 1911 on a Kent hop farm owned by the Whitbread Brewery. Whitbread Goldings Variety was released in 1953 and thereafter widely planted in the UK. Despite its name, WGV likely has Fuggle parentage.

    Brewing Application: Dual use. Although often used for its distinctive flavor and aroma in a range of traditional English and Scottish ales, WGV delivers good bittering potential for everything from milds and Scottish ale to bitter and pale ales. Its bitterness is consistently described as clean and crisp.

    Sensory: Fragrantly woodsy with overtones of fresh garden herbs and green fruit, thanks to good proportions of humulene and farnesene.

    Botanical Classification:
    Family: Cannabaceae
    Genus: Humulus
    Species: Lupulus

    Maturity: Early to mid-season
     
    Yield: Low
