Description

Northern Brewer hops are a traditional bittering hop with pine and mint characteristics. It is the only hop in Anchor Steam beer, where it is used for both bittering and flavor/aroma. Many, many recipes call for using Northern Brewer as a bittering hop. We find using 1 ounce when brewing five gallons provides a nice generic bitterness for a variety of beer styles.

BEST ANSWER: I am not too sure with this hop as I do not use if much but I always have my hops out of the freezer as little as possible and once I open them, I store them in foodsaver bags vacuum sealed. I generally have hops in my freezer for over a year. If I do use hops over a year old, I usually do use more of them since I know they lose a little of their power. I hope this helps.

Great Piney aroma and flavor
I was reluctant to use piney hops because I had the idea that Best IPA most end on citrus or floral flavor but Northern Brewer hop has a real hop taste and it gaves a traditional piney IPA taste. Love it.
