I am going to put on deck a belgian strong dark that I have been wanting to brew for about a year now, and I am wondering what the difference is between Hallertauer "Tradition" and the Hallertauer "Hershbrucker" hops
any ideas??
Cheers
JJ

Here is a great article on hops that explains the differences in German hop names: The Sober Brewer: The Mittelfruh Code: Hop Varieties and How They Are Named

Tradition can be substituted for Hersbrucker directly if you are using it for aroma or flavor additions, but since it has a higher alpha acid content than Hersbrucker, you need to calculate the amount for bittering based on HBUs or similar.

So basicly there the same? Or am I missing something. The only one of the hallertauer family that is different is the mittelfruh, correct?
Thanks for the links guys
Cheers

I would say "basically", yes. Their alpha and beta acids are however, flipped. I.e. Hersbrucker- a: ~4-5%, b: 6-8%. Tradition- a: ~6-8%, b: 4-5%. So........+1 on billtzk's advice

I would use Mt Hood if you can't get the real thing. (German Hallertauer)
