MEGA MOTUEKA™ THIOL ENRICHED HOPS
As an aroma hop, Motueka has a distinctive fresh crushed citrus ‘mojito’ lime character. Motueka makes excellent dual-use hop carrying an exciting fruit aroma with refreshing notes of tropical fruit and citrus. It can be used at any point during the brewing process and works well in sweet, malty and fruity beers.
Mega Motueka takes Motueka one step farther by enriching the hop with Phantasm powder.
Phantasm is a powder made from Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc grapes. They are incredibly rich in Thiol precursors, which when added correctly to a fermenting beer, can unlock rich, strong tropical fruit aromas.
