im a pilsner guy. i recently went to my local package store becuase they have a small selection of hops and yeast. its only like 10 minutes from my house which is alot closer than my closest LBMS which is like an hour away.


anyways, ive been using an ounce of cascade at the start and an ounce of saaz at the end... they didnt have any saaz but they had a bunch of others there... any suggestions?

You may want to have a look at this chart. http://byo.com/referenceguide/hops/. It suggests Polish Lublin. I had the same problem with Saaz about a month ago and ended up begging for them at a local brew-on-prem place.

i was looking at that. i just did a big circle between saaz, tettnanger, and Polish Lublin... the didnt have the saaz or tettnanger, and i dont remember seeing the polish lublin before at all.

they had a box full of the 1 ounce gold bags of crosby & baker. and half of them i had never heard of before

A pilsner really wants Saaz if at all possible; that spicy flavor and aroma is a pretty key element to the style. If you can't get those, I'd stick with noble German hops; Hallertau and Tettnag would be OK.

If you can't get Saaz or Tettnanger, then +1 on Hallertauer...

Perle on bittering and Tett or Halleratau for aroma.

Sterling or Liberty - you should be able to find either one of those.

Any noble hop would be fine.
