HBC 360 Hop Substitutions
If the HBC 360 hop is hard to find or if you are simply out of it on brew day, you can try to substitute it with a similar hop. The old way of choosing replacement hops was done by experience and "feel". There is nothing wrong with that way. However, we wanted to build a data-driven tool to find your HBC 360 substitutions.
There are no manually picked substitutions for this hop. You can instead use our tool that uses data to find similar hops.
Is HBC 360 available in lupulin powder?
Unfortunately, there is no lupulin powder version of the HBC 360 hop. Neither Yakima Chief Hops (Cryo/LupuLN2), Haas (Lupomax) or Hopsteiner have created versions of this hop in lupulin powder form yet. Too bad too - it is pure hop lupulin powder, which leads to huge, concentrated flavor when used in the whirlpool or dry hop additions.
