Hops - VIC SECRET Pellets
Occasionally we may need to substitute to 1oz YCH nitrogen purged hops.
A whirlpool and dry-hop specialist with clean passionfruit and pineapple overtones.
Breeding/Development: Australia. Developed from a seedling bred in Victoria in 2000 and known initially as Cultivar #00-207-013, Vic Secret™ shares parentage with Topaz. It was released for commercial production in 2013.
Brewing Application: Aroma - specifically as a whirlpool and dry hop. In trials, late kettle additions were found to emphasize earthy aspects with little fruit, while whirlpool and dry hop additions will maximize impact of its high myrcene fraction.
Sensory: Clean and bright tropical character (passionfruit, pineapple) with supporting notes of fresh herbs and pine needles. Similar to Galaxy but lighter and less dominating.
Alpha Acid Range: 14.0-17.0%
