I am trying to buy some in bulk and so far have ordered Cascade and Willamette. Would order Citra, Amarillo, or Simcoe but its all gone. thinking I might order one more domestic and a European Hop. Found a good deal on Calypso and Hersbrucker and Hallertau. Trying to decide between Hersbrucker and Hallertau

And I'd be very sad at what I couldn't use. If the apocalypse happened however, I could still hit most of my styles with these.

  1. Saaz (essential for my pilsners)
  2. Centennial (with this, no need for cascade)
  3. Chinook (must have for my IPAs)
  4. Magnum (generic high-AA bittering hop for me)
I'd add a 5th, probably Hallertau, for all german beers without the spicey notes of Saaz.
