Usage Tips:

  • Amarillo hops are prized for their intense citrus aroma, making them ideal for late hop additions or dry hopping. Add them during the last 10-15 minutes of the boil or directly into the fermenter for maximum aroma impact.
  • Consider dry hopping with Amarillo hops to enhance their citrusy aroma even further. Adding them during or after fermentation can impart a fresh burst of aroma to the finished beer.
  • Use Amarillo hops judiciously to avoid overpowering the beer with their potent aroma. Start with a conservative amount and adjust according to your taste preferences and desired aroma intensity.
