Scientific Digest


Sulfur components in hops have many different faces. Though we love them for bringing us flavors such as rhubarb, passion fruit, grapefruit and black currant flavours, they also surprise us with nasty flavours such as onion-like, garlic-like or just cheesy. By name, these are known as S-methyl-thioisobutyrate, S-methyl-thio-2-methylbutyrate, S-methyl-thioisovalerate, S-methylthio-4-methylpentanoate, and S-methyl-thiohexanoate. One parameter that significantly influences the formation of these compounds is the harvest time of the hops. This article shows how the concentration of the onion/garlic compounds increases during harvest time for varieties as Cascade, Mandarina Bavaria, Polaris, Hallertau Blanc and Hüll Melon. Although many studies have shown that a later harvest brings a more overall flavourful aroma profile for some varieties, e.g. Hallertau Mittelfrueh (and I put here my hypothesis that this includes many varieties that express intense fruitiness such as Citra, Mosaic, Cascade, etc.), the harvest date should be chosen carefully.


Kammhuber, K.: Influence of the Date of Harvest on the Sulphur Compounds of the Special Flavour Hop Varieties Cascade, Mandarina Bavaria, Hallertau Blanc, Huell Melon and Polaris.
