House hops

What do you use the most? Do you guys have base hops (akin to base malts) that you keep in bulk perhaps?

I got a pound of Ekg, I was wondering about you guys?

Finishing a keg of that, it's pretty tasty, I wanted something different than the Common Room ESB as I got a pound of EKG earlier this year, it's quite a good brew.

Will brew again. :mug:

Is beer a common drink or a special drink for you?

Do you keep it for special occasions or are you a daily drinker?

I am a semi-frequent drinker myself allowing myself a pint on at least 5-6 nights a week.:rockin:
