Bittering Hops

Bittering Hops

These hop varieties contain resins with high levels of alpha acids that create the distinct bitterness in beers.  They have less aromatic oils therefore they generally don’t contribute much flavour or aroma to the finished beer.  Bittering hops are added to the beginning of the wort boil to allow the temperature to bring out the most bitterness.

Below is a current list of bittering hops.
