Bramling Cross

Bred from a crossing in 1927, by Professor Salmon at Wye, of a Bramling (one of the traditional Golding varieties) with a male seedling of the Manitoban (Canadian) wild hop. This variety has good yields, early ripening, tolerance to wilt and an 'American' aroma which lends itself to speciality beers. Often used as a general purpose kettle hop for a smallish proportion of the hop grist. However of late its uses have been to provide a special fruity, blackcurrant and lemon notes in traditional ales. Bramling Cross gives the brewer considerable scope for experimentation.

Availability

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.
