Saphir hops question
I'm looking to do an american IPA for my next brew. At this point my plan is to use 1.1oz marynka pellets 60min, .5oz amarillo 15 min, .5 oz amarillo 1min, and dry hop 1oz amarillo.

I have found a good deal on some German Saphir Pellet Hops, and was wondering if I could replace any of the hops I'm planning on using with these?

i havent even heard of these.

I haven't heard of them either.

There's not even much on teh googlze...

Looks like ROgue has used them in their 10,000 brew ale and some people are using them in Pilsners...

But the info is scant....

Never heard of them. Did some googling, it looks like these hops are a low AA aroma hop that probably won't do much in an IPA. Maybe as a dry-hop?

I did find this....


It has an accompanying PDF file, but the file shows empty on my computer.

Wow thanks guys. I suppose I'll order some of these to try for aroma. Here's the link. Let me know what you think.:mug::confused:
