Magnum was created at the Hop Research Center in Hüll, Germany from a cross between Galena and an unnamed German male variety. Released in 1980, Magnum is very vigorous, high-yielding and stores very well, and for this reason is quickly increasing in popularity in Europe and the US. Magnum is used predominately as a base bittering hop, with subtle citrus flavours making it a great choice for lagers and pale ales.

Wilt tolerant but susceptible to powdery mildew.

Will grow to approx. 15-20 feet once mature.

Hop Plant Care

Growing hops is easy!  The instructions below are sent with each plant, and you can find more information on our Guides & Info page.

  • Hop plants are a hardy perennial, best planted as a bare root during the dormant winter months.
  • Hops like a well drained fertile soil and should be planted in open ground as soon as possible.
  • Make sure the hole is deep and the crown well covered.
  • Mark the spot with a screw peg.
  • Install your support (trellis, coir string) for the plant to climb up before the spring.
  • Small shoots should appear when the weather warms (April)
  • Train the shoots clockwise during May & June.
  • Harvest at the end of August.
