Diamond Springs Hop Substitutions

If the Diamond Springs 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 Diamond Springs substitutions.

There are no manually picked substitutions for this hop. You can instead use our tool that uses data to find similar hops.

Is Diamond Springs available in lupulin powder?

Unfortunately, there is no lupulin powder version of the Diamond Springs 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.
