Pilgrim hop was created by Pebbbles
Description:
Has been compared to Target, but much hoppier with a profile similar to "Pioneer" Great bittering as well as finishing hop.

Brewing Quality
In brewing trials Pigrim has performed well as a replacement for high alpha or dual purpose hops. Because of its alpha it has been compared to Target more than any other variety. It has however a much hoppier aroma than Target due to its higher levels of Humulene and Challenger-like Selinene levels. From early storage trials stability of the alpha acids in Pilgrim seem to be excellent.

Origin/History
Pilgrim is a mid-late ripening very Wilt resistant dual-purpose variety (9 - 13% alpha) which was developed at HRI Wye and released in 2000. It has the same father as First Gold and Herald although it is not a dwarf variety.

Agronomics
Pilgrim has a very vigorous growth habit and has good resistance to both powdery and downy mildew. It has shown to be the most Wilt resistant variety to date and is a very high yielder.

Just finished a good brew day, brewing an English Bitter or maybe it s a pale. Did a starter seemed to go well. But my picnic tap on my keg snapped so had to use a pair of plyers to pour. Nice n foamy :D

Think you'll find the others will be like the grainfather app if they are set up correctly.

Hi everyone, just wondering why the likes of BS, Brewfather ect specify a lower strike water volume than the sparge volume? The only one that does not is the Grainfather app.
