I just ordered some 1210 and 6300! Can't wait to try them in a pale ale... Anyone have any recipes recommendations that really highlight the flavor and aroma of a single hop?

Are the experimental rhizomes on sale too? I Hope u can get them.

Edit: Ok, let me rephrase it. Since most experimental hops are never made into production due to the hop not commercially profitable, are those hop rhizomes going to be on sale by chance?

I figured this question wouldn't hurt to be asked since vegetable seeds and fruit plants are also sold like this too. I figure home gardeners might enjoy having an unique hop plant in the backyard while the people responsible making this type of noncommercial hop plant can make a little profit from selling it too. :)

Absolutely not. Any hop breeder, including myself, would not let a valuable new variety go to rhizome. Any hop farmer could grow the variety you spent tens of thousands of dollars developing, without you getting a cent. . If the industry likes the new hop, Hop Steiner, a private company, will patent it for 25 years, like Simcoe or Amarillo. Maybe in 30 years, maybe you can get a rhizome... Probably more like 40 or 50

The only hops available for homebrewers are old varieties or developed by the USDA breeders at Corvallis. Pretty bad choices besides Centennial, which I believe was a private variety that had its patent expire.

Chinook, Cascade, Williamette, Columbus, etc. are "bad choices" for hops? :confused: You can buy those rhizomes.
Or do you mean the rhizomes themselves are inferior quality, or they are older/outdated "lines" compared to what the hop farms use now?

Yes. From agronomics point of view, Centennial is disease prone, Williamette is a bad hop IMO, Chinook has low yield. Cascade was the start of an era of American hops, doesn't count. Columbus is the only dual purpose hop that's nice for homebrewers. Most public varieties have either poor aroma, bittering, Agronomics, etc compared to private varieties. Palisades matches any English hop in aroma and bitterness and yields nearly twice as much as anything public.

Brewing a batch of BierMuncher's Centennial Blonde on Monday. I plan to use the exp 1210 to replace the cascade in the recipe. Hopefully it turns out good

I plan on brewing takes on the bee cave pale ale with the 1210 & 6300 varieties. Which is pretty close to what Steelers77 says he does for test batches.

Any updates on how the recipes are going? I have a pound of 6300 and 1210. I plan on doing an IPA with 6300 and an APA with 1210 on Sunday. Just wondering if anyone has suggestions or tasting notes yet.

So your only flavor additions were a half oz. of 1210 @10 and a half oz. of 6300 @0? If so, that's not going to give you a whole lot of flavor.

I tried my beer brewed with 6300 this past monday, and although its not fully carbed i got a pretty good concept of the flavor. I'm getting way more of the grass/pine/dill flavors than the fruity flavors. I think maybe mixed with some cascade or maybe the 1210 it would be a great beer. I dont remember my quantities, but the additions were something like 60, 15, 10, 5, 0, and dry hopped with an oz for 7 days i think (almost no aroma on my beer at all, might have to bump it up to 2 oz next time).

Ok, my single hop beers are carbonated and we tasted them last night.

Grist: 95% pale 2-row, 3% c-40, 2% carafoam. 2 gallon batch size - split into 4 boils, for four 1/2 gallon batches (fourth batch was calypso single hop). each boil separately hopped; hop schedule: ending IBUs: 70, only difference in hopping was 60 minute hop to arrive at 70 IBU. equal hopping done for all hops at 30, 15, 0 and dry hop. 0 minute and dry hop equivalent to 2 ounces at a 5 gallon batch size.

Tasting notes:

1210: Mild aroma, light citrus, light lemon. Can see how it is compared to Cascade in the official descriptors. Good flavor, favorite of 3/4 tasters
6300: Very unusual, quite sweet. Almost thought something was off with the batch initially, but after a few sips it settled down. can see how jolly rancher is in the official descriptor. Still not sure on this one, least favorite of all.
5256: My personal favorite, not overwhelming aroma, but more aroma than 1210. Light citrus, but a heavier flavor than 1210 (in a good way). Can see comparison to simcoe, although milder.

None of them "blew" me away, I think Mosaic and Calypso (most recent experimental to commercial varieties) bring more to the table, at least in a unique sense. However, I am going to use 5256 and 1210 again and see how they blend. 6300, dont know about that one....
