Styrian Fox Hop Substitutions

If the Styrian Fox 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 chosing 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 Styrian Fox substitutions.

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

Is Styrian Fox available as Cryo/Lupulin powder?

Unfortunately, there is no lupulin powder version of the Styrian Fox 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.
