I got 3 oz of East Kent Goldings for a Robust Porter I was planning to brew....

But it sounds like my LHBS may not be getting more EKGs for a while, so I was thinking maybe it would be better to split these 3 oz over 2-3 brews rather than all in one.

So what would you do? Blow the whole wad on a Robust Porter or make 3 Milds or something?

EDIT: These are pellet hops with a 4.5% AA

Depends. Do you have a lot of other hops in stock? If so, take those EKG out with a bang!

Yea, that is probably the best thing to do under current circumstances.

Note: I can't believe I spelled Robust wrong in the poll. My ESB(1st AG, woot!) must be getting to me

Don't waste the EKG on bittering. Use something else for that and you can probably get 2 batches with flavour and aroma of EKG instead.

That's an excellent idea Bradsul, thanks!

+1 Lots of things you can use for pure bittering. Save the EKG.

+2 Last time I placed an order I picked up a bunch of hops I havn't tried before but were priced very reasonably. Some of the favs like EKG and Cascade were priced out of reason. So I plan on experimenting with various hops, especially some of the unusual high alpha hops for bittering.

I use Centennial for bittering in my Robust porter and Willamette (very similar to EKG) for flavor and aroma. I'd recommend saving half for a future brew.
