HBC 438 Experimental – Now Available to Home Brewers

HBC 438 Experimental 1oz Hop Pellets

Select Botanicals Group has released HBC 438 Experimental Hops (while supplies last) exclusively to home brewers.  This variety is currently in the elite stages of hop development and is currently performing on 1 acre trials.

All proceeds for the sale of HBC 438 benefit the Ales for ALS program working toward a cure for ALS.

Why release HBC438 to ONLY homebrewers first?  Hop breeding, from initial cross to commercialization, is an 11 year (or more) process. After 8-10 years of evaluation by breeders and growers alike, commercialization is considered. Although the variety is in elite breeding at this point, there is still a lot of work to do, including continued agronomic success, grower acceptance and brewer acceptance. Typically, brewer acceptance is gained via small scale volumes and experimental brews on pilot systems. Occasionally, the breeders themselves homebrew for small samples and quick results. After following this pattern for several recent varieties, the idea was sparked, “Why not utilize the entire home brew market as the testing mechanism?”

Brewing Characteristics for HBC438:

  • Alpha: 14-18%
  • Beta: 6-7%
  • Co-humulone: 20-25%
  • Total oil: 2.5-3.5 mL/100g
  • Aroma characteristics of stone fruit, tropical fruit, orange, mint and herbal

Label Peelers has HBC 438 available at $2.99/ou
