Origin and Description

Hersbrucker Pure was an investment by Anheuser Busch Inc to create an improved aroma variety from the the region. This variety is 42% Hallertauer Mittelfrueh, 13% Saazer, and 22% unknown. Hersbrucker Pure was bred at the Hull Hop Research Institute in the early 90's, but the project lost interest so this variety never had the chance to stardom. It can, however, be found on the market.

Hersbrucker Pure is an aroma hops with an alpha acid rating at 4.7%-6.0%. With Hallertauer Mittlefrueh and Saazar as its parents, it has similar qualities in its aroma attributes. It is most appropriate for late kettle additions or for dry hopping in homebrew and commercial beers.

Hersbrucker Pure did receive some positive characteristics for its resistance to disease and wilt. The cones are ready for harvest medium to late in the season. Finding commercial beers with this variety is somewhat difficult, as the acreage and production is low to nill.
