Hops - EKUANOT® Pellets
Formerly known as Equinox, Ekuanot® is a multifaceted finishing hop combining high oil content with strong impressions of citrus, fruit, and herbs.
Breeding/Development: USA. Formerly known as Equinox, Ekuanot® was developed by the Hop Breeding Company and first released in 2014 as HBC 366.
Brewing Application: Aroma and flavour in IPAs, sours, wheat beers, and other styles requiring strong flavour contribution from hops. Ekuanot® has been featured in many single-hop beers. Its high oil content (favouring myrcene and humulene in particular) make it a good candidate for late, whirlpool, or dry hop additions.
Sensory: Ekuanot® is known for delivering a complex array of aromatics, suggestive of lime, apple, melon, berry, cedar, papaya, bay leaves, eucalyptus, clove, sage, and tobacco.
Alpha Acid Range: 4.0-6.5%
