I just got 2 oz. of Nelson Sauvin. To my knowledge Iíve never had a beer with this hop so I was thinking of making an APA with it. Not a SMaSH but a fairly simple grain bill and then 100% Nelson Sauvin. Thinking 20 g at 60 minutes, 20 g at 20 minutes and 20 g at 5 minutes. Iíd like to do this so as to get an idea of the properties of Nelson Sauvin. However Iíd like it to be drinkable too. Iíve read a little here that says Nelson Sauvin isnít that great by itself and it doesnít always play nice with others.
So any ideas on a 100% Nelson Sauvin APA or alternatively what hops it does play nice with?
