Default Thoughts on Falconer's Flight.

Anyone familiar with this hop? By familiar I mean used it more than a couple times and craft recipes because you like it. Any great recipes with it?

I'm not familiar with it, but I hear a lot of people speaking highly of it. I still doubt I'll ever use it, though, for the same reason that I don't brew from kits.

Just had a single hop (well kinda) beer with it at Wiens (Millenium Falconers). I think it's a great standalone blend- it really has a unique flavor that stands out among even the more popular proprietary strains.

I have used it and I think another version of it Flight2 maybe? I really like it as a blend for pale ales. It has the basic essence of C hops but a little more mellow on the bittering, that seems to be a little closer to a noble but with nice level alphas. I have found that the addition schedule and yeast choice you can really pick out which fruity/citrusy character you want to emphasize with this blend. I like Ringwood at 65 and I usually get a peachy grapefruit kinda zing with a good dose of flameout hopping.

I brewed an IPA with it. I don't have the exact recipe at the moment, but it was something like:

10LB 2 row
1.5LB Crystal 60

1oz Summit 60min
.5oz Summit 15min
.5oz Falconers 15min
1oz Summit 0min
.5oz Falconers 0min

Dry hop
.5oz Summit
.5oz Falconers

I absolutely loved this beer. Not overly bitter, fantastic citrus flavor. I get grapefruit with some supporting 'fruity' flavors out of it. Huge fan.

There are two versions. One is falconer's flight, the other newer one is FF 7C's which as the name implies is a blend of 7 "C" hops.

I made this with it the other day and at first I didn't like it. The dry hop addition was pretty grassy, but maybe that's normal?? It has since mellowed out and become a pretty nice drinker.

9.5lb 2 row
.75 Crystal 10
.5 Special B

.5z Cascade - 50 mins
.5z Cascade - 45 mins
.5z Falconers Flight - 15 mins
.5z Falconers Flight - 10 mins
.5z Falconers Flight - 5 mins
.5z Falconers Flight - 0
1.0z Falconers Flight Dry Hopped 1 week

Nottingham at 66 degrees for 1 week
Cold crashed for 2 weeks in keg, one of which was dry hopping

Brewed July 29th

If you are looking at regular falconers flight (not 7 C's) - I have found it to be quite good in amber ales. I like 7 C's in APA's. Try a grain bill along the lines of this (it was for 6.5 gallons @1.066 OG).

11.50 lbs 71.32 % Briess 2-Row Brewers Malt 60 mins 1.037
2.00 lbs 12.40 % Munich Malt 60 mins 1.037
1.00 lbs 6.20 % Oats, Flaked 60 mins 1.037
0.50 lbs 3.10 % White Wheat Malt 60 mins 1.040
2.00 ozs 0.78 % Carafa II 60 mins 1.032
0.75 lbs 4.65 % Briess 2-Row Caramel 60L 60 mins 1.034
0.25 lbs 1.55 % Briess 2-Row Caramel 40L 60 mins 1.034

Hops -

Bitter with an ounce of magnum or something like Columbus @ 60.

Then go falconers flight 1 ounce at a time @ 15, 10, 5, 0, dry or something similar.

I think it goes very well with a "west coast" style amber ale. Use it all the time. . . . . probably 2 lbs per year making 6.5 gallon batches at a time.

last time i used the regular falconers, it seemed really lemony. the time before that is more of a tropical fruit. not sure if it was a difference in blend or what.
