Brewing Values for Eureka
These are the common ranges that we've seen with Eureka hops over the years. Each year's crop can yield hops that have slightly different qualities, so these number ranges are based on history.
|Alpha Acids (AA)|
Alpha acids are the main source of bitterness in beer. Longer boil times will result in isomerization of more alpha acids leading to increased bitterness.
|Beta AcidsThe ratio of alpha to beta acids dictates the degree to which bitterness fades as beer ages. Higher levels of beta acids will result in a slower decline of bittering.||4.5-6%5.3% avg|
|Co-Humulone as % of AlphaLow cohumulone hops impart a smoother bitterness when added to the boil as opposed to higher ones that add a sharper bitterness to the final beer.||27-30%28.5% avg|
|Total Oils (mL/100g)These highly volatile, not very soluble oils are easily boiled off, but add flavor and aroma to the finished beer when added very late in the boil or during fermentation. Learn more »||2.5-4.4 mL3.5mL avg|

Eureka Hop Substitutions
If the Eureka hop is hard to find or if you are simply out of it on brew day, you can try to substitute it with one of these other hops for a similar outcome:
Is Eureka Available in Cryo/Lupulin Powder Form?
Unfortunately, there is no lupulin powder version of the Eureka hop. Neither Yakima Chief Hops (Cryo/LupuLN2) nor Haas (Lupomax) have created versions of this hop in lupulin powder form yet. This new type of hop product is pure concentrated lupulin powder, which leads to more flavor when used in the whirlpool or dry hop additions.
Eureka Hop Statistics
We love statistics. We've analyzed hundreds of IPAs, dug into the Hop Growers of America's annual reports and researched the history behind some of the most popular beer ingredients. Here are a few of the things we've found interesting about the Eureka hop:
- Eurkea! was the 7th fasted growing hop in the US in terms of production between 2014 and 2019.
- In 2019, Eureka was the 15th most produced hop in the United States.
