Subject: Hop cuttings; Re : ales vs lagers
Date: 1992-03-07 12:56:47 GMT

Is anybody in the UK purchasing hop cuttings, and if so, where ? The brewing
books mention a couple of research organisations. Secondly, anybody know a
supplier who carries retail amounts of Cascade ?

On the ale/lager issue, I always understood cold clarification was directed at
protein, not yeast, due to the traditional use of undermodified malt in lager.
One of the modern variations has been to employ better modified malts in all
beers except those containing a high proportion of unmalted adjuncts. One
possible offshoot of lagering is what M Jackson terms 'cellar character',
presumably referring to a minor and desirable yeast autolysis note.
