Brewers Guidance

When used late in the kettle, the whirlpool, or for dry hopping, Galaxy™ contributes a striking flavour best described as a combination of passionfruit and citrus. The fruit characters are modulated by different hops, malts, yeasts and dosing, however a late addition of Galaxy™ into the brew is always distinct.
