I have a pound of Wilamette hops I need to use. Do any of you have any really good recipes that use them? It could be any ale from barley wine to wheat, and it doesn't have to be purely Wilamette, but it would help. Thanks guys!

I've got a Brown Ale that is tasty and utilizes Willamettes for the finishing hops. You could use them as bittering as I did in my 11 gallon recipe:

Willamette hops are a Fuggle cultivar, so anywhere you would use Fuggles you can substitute Willamettes.

Fermenting: ESB
Kegged: Extra IPA, Brown Ale, American Wheat, Blackheart Stout
Coming Up: Dunkleweizen, 3C Pale Ale

My rye amber in my drop down uses willamettes with cluster for anti-C-hop type american beer. I put a note on the recipe about the hop quantities and timing... the recipe was from my earlier days when I was trying to get to a certain IBU mark and actually calculating the late additions as part of the IBU total when really it doesn't matter... get the ibus at least to the 30-40 mark and those last .25oz additions I would change to at least .5oz of cluster at 20min and .5oz willamettes at the 5min mark.
