German Perle Hop Profile

Perle hops were originally bred from English Northern Brewer in 1978 at the Hull Hop Institute in Germany. This varietal has now been translated into an American grown variation, though it still retains the same name and general characteristics.

With an alpha acid range of about 7% to 9.5%, Perle can provide a clean and effective bittering quality. You can also expect an aroma of spicy florals to come through if used in later hop additions.

Perle hops are a well-rounded German variety that has steadily gained recognition since its release in 1978. It offers good bittering properties (5-9% Alpha Acids) that is paired with pleasant aromas of herbs and spices sought after in the German breeds. Perle has a similar oil profile to Hallertau Mittelfrüh with Humulene as the major contributor (sometimes over 50% of total oils). Perle’s storage stability is excellent, which makes it highly sought after by professional brewers.
