Wow, in 18 batches, I've only used Northern Brewer in one batch and none of the others. I just bought a pound of challenger because of all the positive things said about it here.

I'm a fan of Columbus & Chinook, but at the last Fresh Hops Fest there was an all Nuggett IPA that was quite fine.

I have pretty much stopped using bittering hops in favor of using all late hop adds.

The bittering I get has a different flavor on it. It's really a smoother more mellow bitter.

So, I didnt vote on this poll

Centennial. I started using it because another type was out of stock, now I love it!
