This American bittering hop was bred from a cross between Nugget and Columbus hops and released appropriately in 2000. Though Millennium contains fairly intense earthy, resinous and citrus aromas, it is most commonly used as a bittering agent in brews.
With an alpha acid range of 14% to 17%, it is one of the highest alphas of the popular American varietals. These characteristics work best in American ale styles like APAs, IPAs and stouts. The best substitutes for Millennium in your recipe are parents Nugget and Columbus hops. Get inspired by tasting this hop in commercial brews like Toppling Goliath Brewing Co.’s Light Speed Pale Ale.
