Hi, any thoughts on using Hallertau hops for bittering (1oz 60 min) or would I be better off using an ounce of Perle? Below is the basic schedule...substitute Perle for Hallertau? Im open to ideas!!! Thanks

6 lbs Pilsner DM
1oz Hallertau 60 min
.5oz Hallertau 15min
.5oz Hallertau 0min (flameout)

that would depend on your desired IBUs. Perle is usually higher in AA than Hall.

Right on...I guess my question is: is it worth using them to bitter? Or is that a poor use of those hops....the AA is in the 3-5 range, I cant remember right now. Anyway thanks for your input.

My default recipe is 1oz 60 min, .5oz 15 min and .5oz at flameout.

But if you're looking for a low level bitterness, you can do that. If you're ok with using 1 oz. as opposed to 1/2 oz. of something else, then go for it.

Another solution that is easy and VERY cost effective is to get a couple ounces of Magnum to use as the bittering in your beers. It takes very little. I would rather use my Hall for flavor/aroma.

Magnum is a Hallertauer mf hybrid.

Yeah, it depends on what you're trying to brew. If you're aiming for a Munich Helles, I'd go with the 1oz of Hallertau for the bittering hops. If you're aiming for a Pils, you definitely need the Perle or Magnum. With the malt recipe you listed, you could brew either. What do you want it to be?

It really depends on the AA%. I just bittered my Helles with Hall. and it was only 2.5%...
