US hops begin to be harvested in mid-to-late August for most aroma varieties.
Flavor & Aroma Profile of Saugatuck Hops
Saugatuck is an aroma hop that is typically used in only late boil additions, including dry hopping.
Not much is written about the Saugatuck hop from GLH, but their description mentions that it is "fragrant", and hard to pin down but pleasant and interesting.
Brewing Values for Saugatuck Hops
These are the common ranges that we've seen with Saugatuck 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 Acid % (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. Learn more »
|Beta Acid %Beta acids are a component of hop resins responsible for contributing volatile aromatic and flavor properties. Beta acids contribute no bitterness.||3.27%3.3% avg|
|Co-Humulone as % of AlphaLow cohumulone hops may impart a smoother bitterness when added to the boil as opposed to higher ones that add a sharper bitterness to the final beer. Learn more »||Unknown|
|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 »||Unknown|
Saugatuck Hop Substitutions
If the Saugatuck 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 Saugatuck substitutions.
There are no manually picked substitutions for this hop variety. You can instead use our tool that uses data to find similar hops.
Is Saugatuck available in lupulin powder?
Unfortunately, there is no lupulin powder version of the Saugatuck hop. Neither Yakima Chief Hops (Cryo/LupuLN2), Haas (Lupomax) or Hopsteiner have created versions of this hop variety 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.
