Origin and Geneology of the NZH-107 Hop

NZH-107 is a proprietary experimental hop blend developed jointly between New Zealand Hops, Ltd. and Brewers Supply Group. NZH-107 was created as part of the BSG Hop Solutions Program and is exclusively sold through BSG.

New Zealand hops begin to be harvested in late February or March and continues through to early April.

Flavor & Aroma Profile of NZH-107 Hops

NZH-107 is a dual-purpose hop that can be used in all hop additions throughout the brewing process.

NZH-107 is a proprietary experimental hop blend developed jointly between New Zealand Hops, Ltd. and Brewers Supply Group and showcases intense tropical fruit (guava/passion fruit) and citrus (grapefruit/lime) aroma characteristics.

NZH-107 is an excellent hop solution for many applications from first kettle to dry hop additions. Given the big character of NZH-107, early trials are focused on intensely hop-forward styles like IPAs, pale ales, and dry-hopped pale lagers.

NZH-107 Hop Substitutions

If the NZH-107 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 NZH-107 substitutions.

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

Is NZH-107 available in lupulin powder?

Unfortunately, there is no lupulin powder version of the NZH-107 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.
