Alpha: 3.5% | Beta: 4.0%
The signature landrace variety of the Hallertau region in Bavaria, Hallertau Mittelfüh is, at least to some, the epitome of noble hops.
Although it can be and is used throughout the boil, it is most prized for its fine, elegant aroma and flavor contribution.
Pedigree: German noble variety
Brewing Usage: Aroma
Aroma: A mixture of sweet, earthy, and herbal with vivid impressions of new-mowed hay, sweet spices, dried flowers, and warm forest aromas (dry wood, humus)
Typical Beer Styles: Continental Lagers and Wheat Beers, German Pilsner, Altbier
Additional Information: Mittelfrüh has been one of Europe’s most widely esteemed varieties for centuries and is practically synonymous with continental lagers (particularly Bavarian styles) and many types of German and Belgian ales. The aroma is complex but mild and approachable.
From time to time we have various specialty hops in inventory. In an effort to build relationships, we offer contracted buyers first priority on specialty hops and a $1 per lb discount from spot pricing.
All forward contracted hops are tested for alpha, beta, HSI and a full oil profile. The test results will be provided to customers. Michigan Hop Alliance stands by the quality of our hops and will refund or replace all hops that don’t meet generally accepting brewing quality standards.

For contracted orders, a minimum of 25% of the order must be delivered per quarter. Michigan Hop Alliance will email the buyer with the remaining contracted inventory quarterly, until all hops have been delivered.
