Kazbek Harvest 2019
These are a super enhanced pellet, ~T45 type. Soft, bright green squidgy pellets. Super fruity.
Kazbek displays a spicy lemon aroma and was released in 2008. Kazbek is the highest peak within the middle Caucasus mountain range.
The predominant aromas in the cold infusion are grapefruit, lemon and lime, accompanied by sweet fruits, such as pineapple, passion fruit, peach and watermelon, with light top notes of honey and cream caramel. These aromas also occur in the raw hops where they are joined by nuances of raspberries, orange, ginger, elderberries and chocolate. Light notes of lemon balm add particular emphasis to the overall aroma.
- Bred from Russian wild hops
For efficient provision of bitterness, the pellets should be added to the wort at the beginning or up to 15 minutes after the start of the boil. Utilisation of α-acids into beer depends on the boiling system and conditions and is normally in the range of 30% – 35%. Added late into the boil, utilisation of α-acids diminishes as the utilisation of the aroma improves giving a characteristic hop flavour in the beer. The quantity to be added is calculated using the α-acids content and the estimated utilisation. For aroma, the quantity to be added should preferably be calculated using the oil content of the product. Pellets can be dosed automatically.
