im planning on brewing a vanilla porter, and an american wheat soon.
what hops would anybody here use??
Yeah... I brew alot of German wheat, so I use Hallertau... but if you are making an AMERICAN wheat, you could use Mt Hood, the American variety of Hallertau...?
porter = east kent goldings, fuggle
wheat = tettnanger, hallertau, saaz
I also used some sweet orange peel and coriander in my last wheat 9-21-07... and the wort tasted SO good.
The key to a clean american wheat is to use smaller amounts of a higher bittering hops, with little to no late additions. You want to shy away from a lot of hops flavor/aroma.
I used a small amount of MAgnum and Simcoe in my Boulevard Wheat Clone (see sig).
I agree with the EKG or Fuggles for any porter.
