From my experience it brings nothing to the table for flavor or aroma but I will agree that it is one hell of a bittering hop.

Count me as another who uses it for bittering. I use Magnum to bitter almost all of my beers.

For no reason other than economy of usage, every brewer should have an ample supply of a high-alpha bittering hop on hand. Galena, Nugget, Magnum. A little goes a long way, and you can use it to bitter just about anything.

True dat...economy plus you can reduce the amount of veg material in the kettle with high alpha bittering on a hop heavy brew.

I have used Zeus hops a number of times for bittering. Its between 16-17%. I'm don't know if it is as clean as magnum but since i enjoy them i don't mind.

Made a MAGNUM P.A. last summer and it turned out awesome. What was even better is that when I was done with the secondary for that beer I racked another Fuggles P.A. onto the cake. I had both flavors of each in the second batch. Was fantastic. Although Mag doesn't bring the flavor aroma to the table, the beer was highly quaffable.

Good point on High AA Hops. Always good to have.

I'm putting together a Hops Direct order. They have German Magnum for $18.50/lb and American Magnum for $24.00/lb. It's hard to say what alpha acids I'll get without calling first, but they look to be in the same range. Is there a preference and why?

I've only used the US Magnum myself, but I can't imagine there is substantial difference between the two.

I have about 10 ounces of Magnum and Galena...

Not that you will get the same lot that I did from HD, but here is what I got. You can call them and I am sure they can tell you... they are excellent people to talk to who are very enthusiastic about what they do. Service there is top notch.

Magnum (GR) 14.7AA

Galena 10.1AA
