Though these hops are known under several names including BKG, Kent Goldings, and East Kent Goldings, they serve one purpose- to add a distinct aroma to your brew. British Kent Goldings originated in the Kent region of England way back in the 1790s. Used mostly in English style Ales and Pale Ales, British Kent Goldings add their soft floral scent of lavender and honey with overtones of fresh lemon and thyme for a little spice.
With an alpha acid range of about 4% to 6%, the aroma is the strong point of this distinguished hop. If you think hops have gone over the top or you need a break from the C hops give Kent Goldings a chance. This hop is famous for blending with the malt in a harmonious, synergistic way. These hops are also among the easiest to substitute by using other varieties of the Golding family like US Golding, or try British Progress hops.
All hops are packaged in oxygen, light and moisture barrier bags. They are purged with nitrogen and stored cold to optimize freshness. Resealable packages feature a tear notch and zipper.
