Liberty Hops

Characteristics

Liberty was developed in the US around 1983 as a replacement for the Hallertauer Mittelfrüh hop variety. It is low in alpha acid (2 to 5%) and is used as an aroma hop. Its best use is in German style lagers as a finishing hop to impart its mild, fine aroma.
When hops are in short supply and prices are high, Liberty is my go-to hop to replace Hallertau and Tettnanger.
