I purchased a kit from brewers best a while back and received 3 sets of hops; flavoring, bittering, and aroma hops. when i received the kit i was surprised to find that all three hops were the exact same but in different amounts; Willamette hops. None of them were labeled as flavoring, bitterings or aroma. So I used the amount to identify which hop to use when (not to mention two baggies were the same amount).
So instead of contacting them i just went ahead and did it and the final product was actually delicious. The hop level was, I'd say, perfect to my liking.
At $40+ a kit I wanted to try and replicate this recipe for cheaper but was wondering if you pros could chime in on my curiousity.
Why were all the hops the same? I checked the specs too and they were literally all the same... maybe packaging error? maybe just noob curiousity?
If I indeed need to use the same hop for all three hop stages what hop can i use that is better in quality and similar in characteristics for my clone recipe.
