Northdown

Bred at Wye College from Northern Brewer crossed with a downy mildew resistant male, is a 'aunt' of both Challenger and Target. It was released for commercial production in the early 1970s. It provides cheaper alpha acid than many traditional varieties, while having excellent flavour properties. Northdown has a very mild, clean, neutral English flavour, it can be used in all types of beer, with no harshness of palate, although the quality of bitterness it imparts can be a little harder than Challenger. The high level of oil makes this a very distinctive dry hop for full bodied ales giving a full fruit palate and considerable breadth of flavour.

Availability

Bare root hop plants are available from late November until early April. Dates will vary depending on the weather and ground conditions however, we hope to start lifting from the field by November 1st. 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.
