Description

Details

Use in brewing

Dual purpose. For aroma and bittering.

Very good high alpha hop that will be mainly used as a replacement for Target in extracts and pellets where bitterness value is the main consideration. Not as harsh as Target in terms of quality of bitterness and has a very pleasant hoppy character.

Substitutions

Similar hops are First Gold, Target & Bramling Cross. Contact us for advice on substitutions as it varies with availability and what you wish to achieve from the hops.

Origin/History

Bred at HRI Wye to increase the range of UK high alpha varieties. Released commercially in 1996.

 Agronomics

Admiral is a high yielding, high alpha variety that matures mid-season and so complements Target in terms of the picking regime. It grows vigorously, producing small, compact cones, which pick well on the machine. It has a question mark over it in terms of Wilt tolerance and is susceptible to powdery mildew, however it is resistant to downy mildew.

Storage

Good
