WTF do I do with these? I orded Summits from FH and they ended up never sending me the Summits- When I got a hold of them they had some issue and said they could sub the summit that they were now out of for nugget.

What good nugget recipies are out there?

You are going to use them mainly as a bittering hop. You could probably use them in just about any American style beer. A source I just read catagoriezes them as herbal and a little spicy.

+1 on bittering - I used them for a pale ale bittering and it turned out great. After smelling them and thinking about it - I wish I kept a little aside and did some aroma/flavor additions with them.

In fact, my brother just moved back up from Missouri and I had him over for a brew day and was showing him ingredients and he liked the aroma from the Nugget better than the Willamette.

I just brewed an all-Nugget PA/APA weekend before last. I bought a pound of them, and was using so little for bittering hops, I thought I'd just see what else they could do. The gravity sample tasted great after a week -- fairly spicy, just as described. I'll probably do a little dry-hopping with them, too, just for grins. Will report back when done.

All Nugget IPAs work really well.

I had a buddy buy like 10 oz. of nugget for 10 bucks at a small LHBS, we figure they were a couple years old....smell like doo doo. Anyway, use for bittering in just about anything, so long as your boil the heck out of em.
