Lubelski Hops

Posted by

Hello Everyone,

We’ve decided to continue writing a little bit about some of the new hops that we bring in to try and give you a better idea of their characteristics.

First up, Lubelski Hops

Lubelski Hops with an alpha acid of 2.8%

Sometimes marketed as Lublin or Lubelski, it’s high humulene content is outdone only by its rare, high levels of farnesene. This oil profile results in interesting aromas of magnolia and lavender.

Pedigree: Derived from Saaz
Brewing Usage: Aroma
Aroma: Noble-like, floral, earthy.

We went with a recipe that has done very well for us in many competitions, a Trappist Single

For this 10-gallon all-grain batch we had a very simple grain bill:

Floor Malted Bohemian Pilsner - 50.0%
Belgian Pilsner- 50.0%

Our hop addition was:

60 min – 8.0 oz - ~40 IBU

The results from this hop are really interesting. It has a very delicate spicy aroma and subtle floral, rose petal-like characteristic. It plays nicely with the Belgian blend of yeast used (Wyeast 3787 High Trappist and Mangrove Jack’s M31) without dominating the beer. When we brew this again, we will add a late addition to try and make the hop presence even more prominent in the aroma.

This beer it crystal clear and very easy to drink, almost too easy. A nice light summer-time beer with plenty of interest to invite you back for a sip

We have some more hops from this region that we will use soon to see how they compare to Lubelski.

Verdict: Any beer that you’d use Saaz or any noble hop in could be replaced by Lubelski, especially if you want a lower spicy presence from your hops.

Cheers!
