There was one small change, however. In 1942, in addition to whole hops, Truman started to use a hop concentrate. Presumably because this was more readily available than hops.
Between 1942 and 1947 considerable quantities of hop extracts and concentrates were imported. I’m guessing because these took up far less space when shipping across the Atlantic. This importation came to a complete stop in 1948, I’m guessing when shipping was less stretched.
All the beers contained the same hops and some hop concentrate. With one exception: P1 Bottling, their top-of-the-range Pale Ale. For which they obviously reserved the freshest hops and didn’t bother with the hop concentrate.
