Fresh Cascade Hop Cones

Fresh Cascade Hop Cones

10 Grams

Naturally Grown from locally sourced rhizomes, this popular hop cultivar pretty much defines the Pale Ale style. Although hops are traditionally known to be Nitrogen-needy, and recommended to be fertilized at the start of each growing season, we've found that planting in raised beds alongside our outdoor mushroom varieties allows a sharing of resources, eliminating the need for added fertilizers.


In addition to their historical use in beer making, hops are currently on the rise as a soothing, calming and sleep-inducing herbal tea ingredient, either alone or combined with Mint,  Chamomile, Lemongrass and Reishi. For tea-making, ideally use hot, but not boiling water (80C) to prevent the evaporation of Cascade's aromatic oils during steeping. Many homebrewing hobbyists follow this same protocol when adding "late-addition" hops to their wort, or add a cooled tea during later fermentation for "dry-hopping" to pack the finished beer with delicate hop flavours, rather than simple bittering.
