Hello,

I have some Spalt hops - and will use them in an upcoming lager.
I have read some descriptions on the ingredients/hops page here.

Does anyone have any more first hand info/experience on these hops in terms of flavour/characteristics?


Cheers.

If anyone does, please add them to the wiki.

Oh and I don't have any extra info, sorry.

It's a German bittering hops for Düsseldorfers and their Alt Bier.

Dusseldorf? Komisch! Das Spalt gebiet is Sud von Nurnberg und West von Ingolstadt zwischen Ingolstadt und Augsburg.

(Dusseldorf? Funny? The Spalt region is south of Nurnberg and west of Ingolstadt between Ingolstadt and Augsburg).

It is mainly used as a finishing hop.

I used it for flavor and aroma in my Kolsch. I am not familiar enough to really say much beyond what the text books say about it, but I like my Kolsch so it must not be bad.

Generally speaking, there aren't any really bad hops...

Thanks for all the replies.

I have switched to lagers since going AG....so I am using one hop at a time (per brew) so I can get more familiar with them. I love Saaz and Hersbrucker. I have the Clone brews book - but there wasn't a commercial example of something that used Spalt.

I will report back on Spalt in a few months.
Cheers.

Spalt is used in some local Hefe Weizens...in Germany that is.

Ja, verstandlich aber Dusseldorf ist weit von Nurnberg. Haben Sie nicht eine Dusseldorfer hopfen?

I have used Spalt in my Kolsch and Alts as a bitter/flavoring hop--usually with several additions at the 30 and 45 minute marks of a 60 minute boil. I'd describe it as somewhat spicey and earthy, a little floral. I really like it but i went so far as to do a double Alt with nothing but Spalt hops and was disappointed in the result. I do not think it has enough all-around properties to carry a beer. Mixed with Hallertau and or saaz it is great. my two cents.
