Default Too much Tettnag; must brew more beer.

We should all have such problems.

My LHBS gave me 4oz of tettnang instead of .4oz of tettnang. Obviously, I need to build a batch around these extra hops. But what?

I think I'd like to brew something that highlights the hop; I haven't done that yet with tettnang. Could anyone give me some ideas?

Tet is a nice noble-style hop. You can use it for almost anything other than an APA/AIPA. It's great for almost any Continental style beer.

That sounds like something I would use in an imperial pils. Try 2 oz at 90, an oz at 30 and an oz at 2. Shoot for a high og, something around 1.080, with just pilsener and cara pils, maybe very little caramel 10 or 20.

Sadly, I lack the ability to do lagers, although I'm getting slowly closer. I wonder if a pilsner recipe would work with US-05?

Why not trying it ? Can you keep it cool? If so, you can use Saflager dry yeast. I have a german pils recipe that i ferment at 20 and it taste perfect.

You can also do a bock.

I read in a mag you can use us-o5 , ferment as cool as you can, then after the beer is bottled and carbed, leave the bottles in the fridge for a couple months, and it will taste like a lager. or you could use Wyeast 2112, or the White Labs equivalent, they are lager yeasts that can ferment in the low 60's.
most recipes I've seen that used Tettnang hops have been lagers, but I think you could probably use them in any european ale style. Wouldn't work well in American ales though.

I got thinking after reading the replies to this thread, and this is what I came up with. What do you all think?

Extra Tettnang SMaSH APA
10# maris otter
2oz tettnang 60min
1oz tettnang 10min
.5oz tettnang dry hop
S-05
Mash at 152*F.

Why use ALL 4oz in the same beer? Tettnang is a preferred bitter hop for me. Cut the 2oz addition to 1.5 and add aroma of .5 at 10min. Save the other 2 oz for your next pale. Perle is another solid bitter hop for me. Very clean. Or if you can fit a small 2.5 or 3 gal bottle in your fridge, use that to make a german lager w the tettnang. Can't go wrong either way.

Jump on the Doppelsticke bandwagon! I used 4oz Hersbrucker in a 2.5G batch. Malty, spicy and delicious. I think brewing a Tet Offensive version would be good as well. Here's the largely unsolicited recipe.

6 Lt Munich
1.5 wheat
.125 Pale chocolate (just for color, you could use carafa or whatever or omit entirely)
Rice hulls
Mash 8qt at 155, sparge 10qt
.33 Millenium 45 (use any hop to get 30-35 IBUs)
1 Hallertauer FWH
3 Hallertauer steep 20 min
WLP036, (us-05 would work fine, just a little more attenuative, which the beer could have used as it aged)
1.087/1.020/8.7%
60ibu, 24srm

I used all tett in red ale once and it was delicious!
