I have been looking on the Internet for hops to go into my Bitter and my ESB that I will be brewing at the end of next month. I really want to use Whole leaf hops but am having problems finding exactly what I am looking for. I know when wine is concerned, the flavor is greatly dependant on the region, weather and climate that the grapes are grown in. I figure that Hops are probably the same.
I have found several sites that sell Whole Leaf Fuggles Hops but they are all listed as being American Fuggles. I was wondering what kind of taste difference will exist if any between the US Fuggles and the UK Fuggles.
I am also having realy problems finding a HBS that sells Whole Leaf East Kent or just Kent Golding Hops. I have found one that listed they had it but upon contacting them found that it was actually grown in the US which technically doesn't make it a Kent Golding at all.
Just wondering if there will be any taste difference between the US and UK hops and if anybody knows of an online HBS where I can buy Whole Leaf East Kent or Kent Golding and British Fuggles.
Thanks in advance.
