I ordered Northern Brewer's Brickwarmer Holiday Red All Grain
kit to brew as a holiday brew. The kit arrived today and as I was going through it, I noticed that I received German Brewer's Gold hops instead of US Brewer's Gold as the recipe calls for. I know they're different and I'm inclined to call NB and get it straightened out. However, since they're closed for the day at this point, I figured I would take the time to see what the consensus was here.
I'm curious how it would change the beer. I'm still new to brewing (hence the kit), so I've been sticking to recipe kits while I get my technique down.
What are the differences between the two hops and how might they change the beer?
