Growth Habit Good vigor, well hopped, and a nice grower friendly hop
Disease/Pest Susceptibility Downy mildew, powdery mildew, and aphids are absent from Australia, so its susceptibility to these is immaterial

A lot of people dont like this hop due to it being used in Victorian Megaswills.

When i first started brewing i loved my megaswills so i used it for this reason.

I now use it along with what ever Aroma hop i feel like using on the day in my JPA (Jamo's Pale Ale) which is my House beer that i put on tap regularly.

I enjoy this Hop.... I reckon that its underrated and over Shunned.

I Challenge everyone to use this Hop :)

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.
