Follow-ups gentlemen? I'm a little curious about this backwards beta-heavy hop

I just brewed a single hop meridian pale ale yesterday. The wort tasted great. I'll have to report back in a week or so.

Keano41, how did this turn out? I'm quite interested in other people's thoughts on the Meridian hops.

I just poured my first pint today. I think it turned out pretty good! A little chill haze so far but it will clear. I went with a pretty light malt bill using 2 row, munich, wheat and victory - around 6 srm. It has a definite tropical fruit taste and smell of fruity pebbles. For 10 gallons I used magnum for a bittering charge and 3oz of meridian at 10 min, 2oz in the whirlpool and 1.5oz for dryhopping

Fruity pebbles? I'm sold. I'm making a 10 oz-single hop Meridian IPA with a pound of lactose.

I agree these hops are very "fruity", I like them a lot and will be using them in some wheat beers soon

A wheat would be great with these hops. I'll have add that to my list.

My meridian/citra ipa fell on it face. Its been bottled for many weeks now and tastes horrible. At first i thought it was the meridian hop but its a peering to be a brewing flaw that is the cause. It has picked up a definite bandaidish flavor to it, which i don't know how it got there. I made three brew in one week and the other two are fine. I used campden tablets in the water and let them sit for 24 hrs before using. one of the other batches used the same washed yeast and all were fermented at 62. Im not sure were i went wrong here but heres the recipe http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f12/merd...itique-392114/ Wish i could give you more info on the meridian flavor profile, I really want this one to turn out great.
