Breeding/Development: Germany. Bred in 1980 at the Hop Research Center in Hüll for high alpha and yield performance and registered in 1993. Magnum is a daughter of Galena and the German male 75/5/3.
Brewing Application: Bittering. Magnum is known for contributing very smooth, clean bitterness along the lines of Nugget and Horizon. High alpha content gives excellent bittering power for any hoppy style; great for German Pilsner.
Sensory: Despite its predominant use as an early boil addition, Magnum has a fine, if understated, character, showing restrained and mild fresh flower and fruit aromatics when used late in the boil.
