Kent Goldings, Willamette and Northern Brewer
Kent Goldings, Willamette and Northern Brewer. These are the hops I've got in my fridge and I want to use them up. Can anyone point me to some recipes that utilized one or two of these? I partial mash, but I think I can find out the method for converting all grain into partial mash.

Thanks in advance :mug:

Sounds like you got the makings for an ordinary bitter or ESB (essentially the same beer except the ESB is typically higher alc and higher IBU). You could tackle it in a couple of different ways. I dont know your setup and your capabilities, but if it was me:

I would start with about 5 lbs of brewers two row (I would go with something like Marris Otter), mash that with some crystal. With the crystal you have some options. You could either mash with a pound of dark crystal like 120, or you could use a lighter crystal like 60 and add a quarter pound of chocolate. Again if it was me, I would do the lighter crystal and add the chocolate. Then take an ounce of your northern brewer and add it at 60 minutes, along with about 3 pounds of the lightest DME you can get your hands on. Then add .5 oz EKG at 40, 20 and 5. That would make a very good Bitter IMO.

I second an ESB or a SB or even just a B.

Or any English Ale.

You could try the Goblin if you aren't afraid of the taste. :D

The goblin jumped and jumped and sat on the elephant's trunk. The elephant sneezed and fell to his knees and what became of the Hob Goblin, oh what became of the drunk!

mmmmmmmmmm Hob Goblin!

Man, hold on to that Goldings and sell it. :P I bet its gonna be worth a small fortune in a month or two.

Here's another vote for the ESB.

+1 for ESB.

This simple AG recipe uses Northern Brewer and turned out fabulous. I am rarely completely happy with how my homebrews turn out, but everyone from non beer geek neighbors to hardcore craft-beerians loved this one. I used a very course crush so effic was very low, so adjust that to your liking...:
