I got 4 ounces of fresh organic Vojvodina hops from the wonderful people at Foothill Farms in the beautiful Stockbridge Valley in upstate NY.

So, now what the hell do I do with it?

I have only been able to find one post where it says that it is a higher AA english noble hop. Can anybody tell me any more? How about taste, history and maybe some suggestions on how I shoudl use it?

Thanks.

I thought that YEAST came from a vodgevageena, not hops...

From what I've read, they're similar to a more mellow Hallertau. Not many people use them, but they seem like they'd be a good replacement for anything that would take a noble hop addition.

THe question is, why dont many people use them? Are the undesireable in any way, a newer strain, or just not well distributed?

Im thinking about using it in a brown ale. Not sure if it will be good though.

Huh. Never heard of the hops, but Vojvodina is a region in Northern Serbia. Look for Novi Sad on the map and you'll see it. Maybe there's some link to Serbia somehow.

They are a newer strain that was produced to replace another variety, but they haven't even caught on. From what I've read, the yield isn't that great and they're not anything special or too differing from what the market already has. Plus, they're hard to spell.

Actually, yes, there is a link. On Wikipedia, they are listed as a Serbian grown hop. Is there even a serbian beer?

Also, do you know what strain they were designed to replace?

I had a few Serbian beers in Belgrade. None were good. Jelen pivo (Jelen meaning "deer") was the one I remember and it's just basic industrial lager with no special character.

The dark Nikšičko Pivo from neighboring Montenegro is pretty decent though, so we drank a lot of that there. They have the pale version here in Zagreb, but it's not as good as the dark one, IMHO.

InBev - So it's Serbian Budweiser. (So, drinking a Jelen Pivo now.... more like a Heineken I think)

Hop varieties that are mainly grown in Serbia are Magnum (German variety) and Aroma, which is grown only in the Vojvodina region. So maybe Vojvodina = Aroma hops.
