Default Recipes using Northern Brewer Hops?

With the hop shortage and more expensive hops, I am looking to use what I have in terms of hops. I have a bunch of Northern Brewer hops. Anyone have a line on an IPA that uses them? I could do PM or All Grain. Whatever works.

Walker-san's IPA uses them, I believe. The recipe should be in his signature.

+1 on Walker's IPA. GREAT recipe, the first homebrew I made where, when I drank it, I knew I had nailed it.

They are the traditional hops in a California Common (bittering, flavor, and aroma).

I just brewed a nice stout, a mini mash. A 7.5 gal. batch
12# dark LME
.75 #roasted barley
.75# chocalate malt
.75# crystal (120)
1.5# flaked oats

3 oz. northern brewers @ 60 min.
Just the aroma cooking it I know it's going to be good!

It is a hop that I think you have to be a little careful of; they can be a little on the harsh side, I think.

When I was brewing a lot, I relied on Northern Brewer as my main bittering hop for a lot of brews. My brewing buddy usually detected a wintergreen note in the flavor of my ales, and I always wondered if that came from the Northern Brewer hop.

I suggest picking a favorite recipe, and substitute the Northern Brewer hops and see what happens. Recalculate the quantity of Northern Brewer hops needed to equal the bittering strength of whatever the other bittering hop was in a recipe of your choice. Here's a great opportunity to experiment.

I actually use them primarily in my IPA, I think it comes out pretty good. I started using them because it was what I had on hand when I formulated the recipe, I know it isn't an ideal IPA hop by any means, but it makes a tasty brew.

Oh, yeah, that's right! I'm making an Anchor Steam beer and it's all NB hops. (Almost 2 ounces of them!)
