Description

Traditional Czech Saaz hops are most commonly chosen for aromatic additions to Pilsners and Lagers, but also work well in Light Ales and Belgians. Though alpha acids are low, they are used for both bittering and an aroma of pleasant earthy, herbal and floral notes. You can finish just about any Lager recipe with this versatile hop. Even though it has a low alpha-acid content you will find many traditional recipes using this hop for both bittering and for flavor/aroma additions.

Hop Statistics
Alpha Acids: 2.0 – 5.0%
Beta Acids: 7.0 – 8.0%
Alpha-Beta Ratio: 0.25 - .71
Cohumulone: (% of alpha acids): 24 – 28%
Total Oils in mls per 100 grams dried: 0.4 – 0.7
Similar Hop Varieties: U.S. Saaz, Sterling

Are these CZ Saaz hop pellets imported or domestic? Are they 2017 Harvest?
Cory Nichols on Mar 18, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your inquiry. Unfortunately, we can't give a general answer of the crop year for the hops since our inventory is constantly changing and we always do our best to provide the freshest hops possible. If you're ever concerned with the quality of the hops, we're happy to help you out.

These hops are imported Czech Saaz.

Nice Hops and Packaging
I like the hops carried by MoreBeer. They make great beer. I like the heavier resealable hop packages better than some other suppliers use.

GREAT HOP!
Used these hops in a saison and could not have been happier. Great aromatic addition without being overpowering which I feel enhanced the experience. Czech Saaz are now a favorite.

Default Noble Hops
I use Saaz in many European style beers from German Lagers to Belgian Blondes and Triples,

Cost point is great for 1lbs and the packaging is excellent with a zipper to keep freshness for leftovers between batches.
