With an alpha acid content between 2.5% and 5.5% and similar beta acidic content, this hop is rarely used as a bittering addition. What you will get is the lush fragrance of floral, fruity, and spicy notes often used in Pilsners and German style Lagers. Spalt is also a great option for dry hopping, and brings out a wonderful hoppy flavor. Possible substitutions for German Spalt hops include Saaz, Daughter Spalter Select, or Tettnanger. Taste the distinctly German flavor of Spalt hops in domestic craft brews like Ballast Point’s Yellowtail Pale Ale.
