Description Planting & Growing Instructions
Perle (Germany)

Perle Hops was bred by the Hull Hop Research Institute in Germany in 1978 from a cross between Northern Brewer and 63/5/27M, it is one of the most popular varieties grown in Germany, as this variety is used widely in commercial beers around the region. It has done well due to its versatility and resistance to wilt, mildew, and disease, it has a healthy bitterness with an alpha acid rating of 5.9%-9.5% which is a fairly high alpha variety for the region. Perle has a spicy character, and the aroma is moderate and pleasing and has more than a passing resemblance to Hallertau Mittlefru. The co-humulone content is low like most of the varieties from the region.

The German Perle variety is on the low side as far as yield when compared to varieties around the globe, however its disease tolerance and demand will keep it at the forefront for a long time to come. The small to medium size cones are ready mid to late season after a moderately vigorous growing cycle. Perle is a premium choice for brewing German style Pilsners, Lagers, Atls, Dunkles and more.


Bare root hop plants are available from November 1st until April 15th. The best time to transplant hop plants lies during this period whilst the plant is dormant. Plants in 2 Litre pots are available from May until September but are available for UK mainland delivery only.
