One school of thought (and the one I subscibe to) is that with the exception of the lid new keg parts are less than $3 each. It's much easier and cheaper to replace a questionable poppet, or flat...

Anyone have any tasting notes from their brewing adventures with this hop? I've got a pound and wondering what to do with it.

I'm thinking IPA obviously, but maybe a black IPA? Thoughts?
