    Dry hopping with Simcoe

    First time ever dry hopping with this strain of hops and I found it had some odd properties. I used about 2 oz Simcoe and maybe 1/2 oz of Citra I had left over. I sampled the brew before dry hopping and it was tasty, but I wanted more hops up front. Oddly, the use of Simcoe seemed to add...

    What hop am I missing?

    I'm planning on brewing some simple grain bill/hoppy IPA's soon. They are all for post-boil hop additions & for dry hopping. I have a pound each of Simcoe, Amarillo, Ekuanot & Denali. Anyone want to tell me what 1 or 2 hops I am missing. I'm generally going for a citrus/tropical feel.

    Disappointed with simcoe in a neipa

    Just kegged a neipa with 3.7oz simcoe and 2.5oz mosaic cryo dry hop. Came out very shallow. Mosaic is almost nowhere to be found. Simcoe is just giving me some grassy piness with a very soft peachy note that overshadowd mosaic even though there was more mosaic. The pellets smelled fine but with...

    Best Cheap Hop Combos

    I've been intrigued about hop combos and their biotransformations ever since I heard Stan Hieronymus speak about them. Using nugget and chinook in the whirl pool and/or dry hop produce something much fruitier/tropical than either on their own. I've tried it and it seems to be true. Has anyone...

    Batch #10 Pale Ale... I need some input on my recipe choices!

    This will be my 10th batch and I'm trying to brew up a really tasty hop bursted APA. I also took my first stab at creating a recipe based on all of the stuff I've learned over the last 3 or 4 months. I'm wondering if you guys think Simcoe would work as a good bittering hop in this recipe? If you...
