Magnum Hops Profile

A cross between Galena and a German male hop, Magnum hops are available in both German and U.S. grown varieties. The German varietal is known as Hallertau Magnum, so it’s generally clear where your hops came from. Primarily used as a bittering hop, Magnum has only a mild, herbal, piney and resinous aroma typical of high alpha varietals.

The alpha acid range of 10% to 14% provides perfect bittering in beer styles like IPAs, Pale Ales, and even Stouts. This clean bittering agent is what makes Magnum hops so popular.
This high alpha variety was bred in 1980 at Hüll Hop Research Center in Germany and is known for its extremely large and heavy cones. It produces good yields, and like many of the Hüll varieties, Hallertauer Magnum has a high tolerance to disease.
