Posted in thread: 2013 Hop Harvest - Another "Crisis"? on 02-06-2014 at 08:34 PM
We have fairly small contracts as a neighborhood brewpub/micro (7 bbl system, 1,250 bbl/year
max production) and so far, fingers crossed, we haven't had any varieties denied yet. Amarillo

Day jobs still for sure, very tired at the moment.

Flaked oats will add some depth to the body in a low ABV beer like this. I also really like the
blend of Cascade/Centennial with a red hoppy beer. I would be tempted to up the C120 a bit and

Having been to Germany many times I have to say I have had just as good or better versions in
the US by micro and home breweries. By 'crispness' I assume you mean dry, carbonated, very
clean, cold? Us...

We opened a 7 barrel with 4 FVs and it's profitable in under a year, production is estimated to

clogging the blow...

I haven't actually tried it yet despite having the reagents....White labs is down the street

It wouldn't be my hop of choice....that's all...with Muntons Yeast and MO base I'd use EKG or
