My Hops supplier was clearing out his 2012 stock to make way for the 2013 harvest so I got a great deal on ½ pound of each of 8 different varities.
The problem is that I only brew 5 gallons about once a month so I went a bit crazy when I saw the prices and bought way too much and also bought some not so popular types which were cheap because they don’t sell well. :O
Anyway for 5 of the varities (Northern Brewer, Nugget, Hersbrucker, Mittelfruh, Tettanger) there are more than enough recpies that I can use them in.
The other 3 I’m finding it difficult to find a use for them:
1) Target (anyone have experience with dry hopping?) or a good ESB, EIPA where it is used?
2) Hallertauer Taurus (a good sub for Magnum or do I need to be careful with it?)
3) Aurora (super styrian)
Anyone know any tried and tested all-grain recipes where I could use any of the 3 of these hops; my main aim would be to use a lot of these but I also have a ounce or more of the following hops which I can use with them:
Saaz, Mittelfrueher, Fuggels, Centennial, Mosaic, Strisselspalt, Summit, Falconer’s Flight, Magnum, Cascade, Styrian Goldings, East Kent Goldings and Willamette
I have about 25 pounds each of Pils and Pale Ale and about 15 different special malts and I have only used dry yeast until now.
Thanks in advance for your suggestions.
