First released in 2013, Cashmere came out a little ahead of its time. It is a cross between Cascade and Northern Brewer and primarily displays characteristics of lemon, lime and melon when used to its best potential. There can be a slight herbal background, as well, especially when used on the hot side. \nI’ve found that Cashmere works best as a dry hop in hazy hop forward beer. Cashmere contains lower amounts of soluble compounds that do well at higher temperatures. This means that if you want to get the maximum impact of this hop, use it late in dry hop, especially at temperatures lower than standard fermentation temps. This will reduce the herbal contributions and really help pop the bright citrusy aspects with a nice melon undertone. \nIt works really well with hops like Citra and Centennial, both of which do well at earlier steps in the brewing process.
