Styrian Golding (Slovenia)

Styrian Golding Hops, also called Savinja Golding, is a traditional hops grown primarily in Slovenia, and also Austria; It is not of the Golding heritage, instead Styrian Golding is a form of Fuggle Hops and carries much of its attributes. This variety was the major hops crop for Styria (Austrian state bordering Slovenia) in the 1930's as powdery mildew made its impact on other varieties from the area. Styrian Golding is an aroma variety that has a low alpha acid content of 4.5%-6.0%. This well established traditional variety offers a delicate bitterness with a distinctive flavor and aroma.

The oils show moderate myrcene and caryophyllene levels. The humulene oil registers on the high side at 34.0%-38.0%, and helps provide for some of the spicy character of Styrian Golding.Farnesene oil also makes its mark, its low although present, and help to make this variety ideal for finishing additions.

Styrian Golding Hops is versatile and is used throughout the world. It is an early yielding plant ranging from 1150-1500 lbs/acre which is good for a natural variety from the region. The medium compact cones are harvested early in the season, and Sytrian Golding comes equipped with natural resistance to downy mildew, which helped to shape its success in the last century.
