Just praising Simcoe here. Never used it before, drinking a pale ale i made with it and a splash of columbus @ FWH. Only been bottled for 10 days but still pretty darn good, i get why people love it so much.

I love it too. I made an IPA with it in june that was fantastic. I went to my LHBS for ingredients to rebrew it and they have no simcoe. I'm crying on my keyboard right now

that is why i bought 4 extra oz. My 5 gal batch only needed 2 but now i've got enough to make another 10 gal of this stuff, or make a 5 gal batch of IPA with it. As good as it is, it may wait till next spring, onto to lagers for winter!! Rye Maibock would be interesting with some simcoe....hhmmmm..

Ditto. There's beers I brew with 4oz of Simcoe in a 5 gallon batch. I have about 1.5lbs of Simcoe in the freezer at the moment.

Is it one of the hop varietals that we can not get rhizomes for?
