I got an email from a friend with a link to an Ebay auction selling "amarillo gold" hops seeds.
Now the uncertainties of m/f growing from seed aside, what is amarillo gold? Is it similar in flavor/aroma to Amarillo? Worth a shot?
Here's the link.
Not mine, no association, just shopping.
I use a lot of Amarillo in my beers. 3F is our local "micro" brewery, so a lot of friends/family ask for stuff brewed to their style and I tend to burn through a lot of Amarillo. Was thinking if these are close enough, it would be worth a shot. Or is it a scammy renaming of some varitey/mutant with no relation to real Amarillo?
