Default 3 oz of EKGs - 1 Brew or 3

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

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.
