Sometimes referred to as Tettnang, Schwetzinger, or Deutscher Frühopfen, Tettnanger hops are a natural land race originating in the Tettnang region of Germany.
A traditional noble hop, Tettnanger has been crossed with Fuggles and re-grown in a variety of regions around the world including the U.S., Australia, and Switzerland. While these Tettnanger hops go by the same name and offer the same applications in brewing, you will get a slightly different aroma and higher bittering potential due to the cross with Fuggles.
With German Tettnanger hops, expect that spicy aroma with hints of floral, earthy goodness. Tettnanger has a slightly lower alpha acid range of about 3% to 6% and makes for a perfect addition to German Ales, Lagers, and Wheat Beers.
Alpha Acids: 4.0 – 5.0%
Beta Acids: 3.0 – 4.5%
Alpha-Beta Ratio: .89 – 1.67
Cohumulone: (% of alpha acids): 20 – 25%
Total Oils in mls per 100 grams dried: 0.4 – 0.8
Similar Hop Varieties: Santiam, Spalt, Fuggle
