Use in brewing:
Dual purpose hop. Möst can be used for aroma or bittering. It has a very potent aroma for a Czech-grown hop: described as strawberry bubblegum with some tropical citrus and fresh tones. It’s suitable for an array of beer styles from lagers to hazy pale ales to old ales.
Developed by Charles Faram & Co Ltd and named Möst by the Czech growers, meaning “bridge”. It was seen as bridgebetween the UK and Czech, in light of the UK leaving the EU. Sister of UK varieties Jester® and Olicana®. Möst won its category in the Wellhopped World Series competition 2020, against other Charles Faram developed varieties from growers in the UK, USA, Poland, Czech Republic and Slovenia.
This very new and very limited in volume hop was one we got to rub and smell back in 2019 for the first time. From all of the new experimental hops from Charles Faram this one really stood out. We even got to try it in a great American Pale ale where it delivered loads of fresh fruity bubblegum notes. So after getting so excited about it we contracted for the 2020 harvest to ensure that we could bring some of it to our customers.
We’re pretty sure you’ll be as excited with this hop as we were, as it delivers great smells and flavours without blowing the bank balance.
