Frequently Asked Questions All Q&A

Do you sell to amateur brewers?

The site has been created for both commercial and amateur brewers.

What does IBU mean?

IBU or the International Bitter Unit, is the standard used by brewers to indicate the bitterness level of a beer. A Pils which has 30 to 40 IBU units, will have the same level of bitterness as an English Ale that is indicated with the same numbers. IPAs tend to try to break records with 60 to 100 IBUs. Nowadays, commercially produced beer in France rarely has IBU levels higher than 15.  

Are the organic hops treated with pest control products?

All the pest control products used are natural, and are based on plant and mineral extracts.

How can I choose a hop variety?

A hop variety is chosen based on the aroma profile and bitterness that you would like your beer to have. The Comptoir Agricole site has lots of information on the profiles of its different hop varieties.

Which country is the biggest hops producer?

Germany is the world's largest hops producer, with 17 000 hectares (42 000 acres), then the USA with 12000 hectares (30 000 acres). France grows 470 hectares (1161 acres) of hops in Alsace and in the Flanders region.

Technical characteristics of the Aramis hops variety

Aramis is the product of a 2002 cross between the French variety Strisselspalt and the English variety WGV (Whitbread Golding Variety).
Aramis has very fine aromas, which it has inherited from the Strisselspalt line. It has sweet, spicy notes, with hints of citrus and herbs.
Its aroma and alpha acid content allow it to be used at all stages of hopping.

Map of Aramis hop variety producers

Aramis is grown and harvested in Alsace, France, and is capable of weathering hot summers and cold winters. A sub-continental climate does not adversely affect this variety. Slightly over 50 hectares (124 acres) are in production, with just under 1 hectare or 2.5 acres dedicated to organic cultivation, as of the 2013 harvest.
