Arise zombie thread, ARISE!

I used an ounce of cluster for flavor and aroma (.5 ounces at 20 and 2 mins) last week and I was super impressed with the scent of the raw hops in the package. Totally grapefruit scented when raw. I've used an ounce of them here and there and I don't get the citrus flavor aroma in the beer. I think they are my favorite smelling raw hops.

I just finished a bottle of an all-Cluster American Wheat that really impressed me with the fruity, spicy, and just slightly dank flavor of this which is now my favorite American C-hop. It is a versatile hop! I've yet to encounter the catty complaint I see all over the intertubes. I have encountered clean bittering, spice notes at low levels, with a fruitiness that rises to grapefruit depending on how much is used. It works very well with Nottingham yeast, and even did well giving a light bittering charge to a Hefeweizen earlier this year. I'm liking them best, perhaps, as a dry hop to capture that wonderfully-pleasant smell that they have in the bag.

My wife likes the smell so much she wants to use it to make herbal teas and potpourris and scented candles. (She doesn't drink beer, naturally!)

Would 1.5-2 ounces in a 5 gallon stout batch work, just as bittering at 60 minutes?

Check out www.hopville.com and plug in your recipe, and style of beer, and it should tell you if you're within range of the style.

There's a couple great beer brewing tools out there.
