Great way to make use of your resources. I have quite a few hops I need to use up soon.

I was a bit conflicted using so many high alpha hops when my Local HB store is now charging 4.25 for 2 oz when I bought these hops at 1.95 for 2 oz. But, I am so glad I did. I really love the late addition Simcoe-something I had not tried before and probably would not have done if I had more Cascade. The shortage is really forcing me to explore other hops and is so far a great thing.

This beer is really good-the grain bill is Lagunitas IPA but I like the hops I added better than the Lagunitas Cascade/Willamette schedule. I kept the hops moderate because the audience for this beer are not hopheads.
