(General AA range 10-14%) Magnum is a great bittering hop with an aroma similar to a strong Willamette. It therefore works well with Willamette, Fuggles, and British Kent Goldings. Because its bitterness is so smooth you will find that you can use more of it than many recipes specify. For example, we use two full ounces for a 60 minute boil in IPAs. Great bittering hop for any recipe.
