I am looking for an opinion on some crazy-ish idea. I have had in my mind for a while dry wheat IPA. The original plan was to use 2 cans (yes, extract brewing) of Briess Bavarian Wheat and one can of extra-light pale extract, add some Amarillo, and dry-hop with cones of Nelson...
My 2nd year Sterling and Chinook produced lots of hops. I brew other beers with these varieties, but never together
Anyone out there in Beer-land have a recipe that uses these two in combination?
Not real sure they'll work together, but willing to try.
a hoppy pils? a czech IPA...
Okay brewers, here's the deal. I've got a ton of freshly picked Chinook hops, as well as some frozen hops from last year. I'm looking for a good recipe to use them in. It would be cool to do some dry hopping in the secondary as well. I have pretty much exclusively been brewing Belgian Tripel...
Who grows hops for IPA's? What have you found to be the best homegrown IPA hops?
Centennial isn't as vigorous as the other C hops, but has been a good producer. It's the earliest for me (I'm picking it now). I've never sprayed in 10ish years of growing and never had disease issues, but hear...

I've collected several bulk hops purchases over the last few months. Wanting to use them in something I brewed up an IPA with what I had left. Including a hopshot that I've never used before.
The recipe and recipe and full details are available on my website...
This past Saturday I took a try at brewing a clone of Blizzard of Hops from Troegs Brewing in Hershey, Pa. This is my first attempt at cloning a commercial beer. I used the grains and hops listed on their website to build my recipe. I ordered the hops from Yakima Valley Hops. My LHBS was out of...
