Hi Mark,


I called them Puhoi hops but they're better known as Smooth Cone. My one attempt to use them was a bit of a disaster. I frooze them green (undried) then used them a couple of months latter for late hopping. They had badly deteriated and basically the beer tasted like mud! So if you are going to use them I recommend you use them straight off the bine or dry them first. Below is an extract from the Auckland Brewers guild newsletter this month.

If you picked up a bine of the Puhoi hops from the club or Brewers Co-op and

planted them you have probably harvested them or are about to. These can be

picked and dried in a shady area from direct sunlight or used green. If drying

allow the cones to dry to a papery feel. They can be used in the boil or stored

away preferably under freezing conditions to preserve the volatile hop oils and

aromas. These hops are a low Alpha variety I am told and as they are cones,

you would need to tripple your recipe requirement as if you were using dry

hops. Isn’t it great, beer making is all about trying different things!!. If you

have a story to tell about your Puhoi hopped beer it would be great hear and

put into next months newsletter.
