Default Berliner Weisse Hops

Planning on brewing a no-boil BW this weekend. Only problem is I dont have any german noble hops on hand. I have tons of american c hops, amarillo, etc. I also have fuggles and goldings. I will be doing a mash hop for this with a below 10 IBU. Which would you guys use? The fuggle or the golding?

I think either one would work fine. I used Willamette (which I believe are a fuggle derivative) on my no-boil Berliner and like the results.

Are you doing a decoction? Otherwise your IBUs will be 0.

Cool, I was really happy with my batch (.5 oz of hops in 3.5 gallons). What are you going with for yeast/bacteria? I used the Wyeast blend, but I’ll have to find an alternative since it doesn’t sound like that is coming back any time soon.

Planning on using Wyeast 5335 for the Lacto and US-05 for the Sach. I will make a 1.5L starter of Lacto and pitch it about 48hrs ahead of the Sach. Do you think around 1oz of fuggle would be good for 5.5 gals.

Sounds like a good plan to me, remember to post your results eventually.

Sounds very tasty, I did something similar a few years back, but also added some dark cherries (ala Cuvee Tomme), ended up as one of the best batches I have made. I’m thinking of doing it again this year once cherry season rolls around, probably trying a blend of dark and sour cherries this time though for a bit more “pop”

Sour cherry sounds good. Ive also dumped the dregs from Rodenbach gran cru, Renee Cuvee, and Fantome in. Has a beautiful pellicle that my SWMBO is afraid of.

I received confirmation from Wyeast a couple weeks ago that it won't be back until 2010.
