Nice! I live in HBG and work in Lancaster...we don't have this figured out do we? lol nice to meet you. I have 8 oz of El Dorado hops I'm blending with Chinook in an Imperial English Winter IPA. Can't wait to brew this one!

I made an American Amber Ale last friday and used almost 3 oz of el dorado in it. They smell fantastic, very fruity, like watermelon candy. I'm excited to see how they come out

Glad to hear how good they smell! For some reason, I have this mental block where I can't escape the thought of just a bit of pine mixed with the El Dorado candy flavor, rich dark English crystal, and a nice Maris Otter base. I'm completely hung up on it so I had better get the ingredients!

How'd you guys get them? They only planted like an acre and half. That's crazy.

I just google searched them and Austin Homebrew and Great Fermentations were selling them. I bought 2-4 oz pkgs of leaf hops. I don't think any pellets were made.

I want to make a straight ED hopped imperial IPA to really get their flavor profile.
