FLAVOUR

Perle is the most popular aroma hop in Germany with its floral, spice & pepper elements and it is especially suited to sessionable pale ale, lagers and other styles where high bitterness would be inappropriate.

Perle is described as having much of the same character as Hallertau Mittelfrüh. It has a mild to moderate flavor and aroma that brings pleasing elements of spice and pepper. It also carries some of the signature notes from its Northern Brewer parent, including minty, evergreen, and woody/earthy elements; may also have whispers of pine, green fruit, light florals, and tea.

HISTORY: 

The hop variety Perle was the result of a breeding program aimed at creating a disease resistant alternative to Hallertauer Mittelfrüh. The new hop didn’t get much attention as a replacement, but did become popular in its own right.

Perle’s pedigree includes a Northern Brewer female and a German male ‘63/5/27’. It is reasonable to surmise that the male had Hallertauer Mittelfruh somewhere in its bloodline based on what the breeding program was trying to accomplish.

Perle remains one of the most popular aroma hops in Germany with just over 3,000 hectares  dedicated to it in 2016. 

The United States Department of Agriculture has used a tetraploid Perle firstly to create a triploid version, namely Triple Perle, and a new hop USDA Vista

20 LITERS | ABV 7.5 | IBU ~22 | SRM ~13 | MASH EFFICIENCY 75% | PRE BOIL 24L | OG 1.075 | FG 1.019
MASH 90 MIN @ 67°C | SPARGE 3 LITERS | BOIL 75 MIN 

NOTES:
Mash in at 122°F (50°C); raise to 126°F (52°C) and rest 15 minutes; raise to 145°F (63°C) and rest 30 minutes; then raise to 162°F (72°C) and rest 15 minutes. After that step comes a single decoction: Separate one-third of the mash to a separate burner, bring to a boil, and boil for 15 minutes. Reunite the mash. Vorlauf until the runnings are clear, then run off into the kettle. Sparge and top up as necessary to get about 6.5 gallons (25 liters) of wort—or more, depending on your evaporation rate. Boil for 75 minutes, adding hops according to the schedule. Chill to 46°F (8°C), aerate well, and pitch plenty of healthy yeast. Ferment at 50°F (10°C) for about 10 days, until fermentation is complete and the beer has cleared diacetyl. Decrease the temperature by about 4°F (2°C) per day until you reach 32°F (0°C), then lager for 4–6 weeks, package, and carbonate.
