Usage

Hana is where this barley originated, the Hana valley in Czech Moravia. It was used to produce the very first Pilsner beers back in the 1840s in Bohemia and became the progenitor for the vast majority of successful lager barley varieties to this day. It brings that perfect bready, crisp continental flavour to all lager types, especially Pilsners and Helles beers.

It’s malting character is like a continental variety so treat it as such in the brewhouse with a step temperature programme to solubilise its higher protein content. This will promote a fantastic, pale head. Hana is exceptionally pale in colour.

Brewing: decoction or step-mashing.
