Galena Hop Profile
Ever popular Galena hops were first developed from an open pollination of Brewer’s Gold by the USDA breeding program in Idaho and released commercially in 1978. This bittering hop also offers a touch of aromatics in the form of spicy black currant and citrusy notes.
With an alpha acid range of about 11% to 14%, Galena is possibly the most commonly used bittering hop in the U.S. This high alpha hop works wonders in brews like IPAs, Stouts, Brown Ales, and Pales. Galena tends to be consistently available due to its wide domestic usage from commercial, craft, and home brewers. However, if you did want a substitution, feel free to try out CTZ.
Tom’s Brew Shop Hop Handling Assurance
Tom’s Brew Shop purchases and repackages all hops in vacuum sealed, UV light and moisture barrier bags. We brew with the same hops we sell, so we care about the safe handling and implemented packaging procedures that are best for the shelf stability of the product.
