The recipe for the 3-gal Oktoberfest-style ale I'm brewing this weekend is using .75 oz Nugget for bittering @ 60. I have a 1/2 oz Tettnang leftover from a Weiss that I brewed earlier in the summer that I was thinking of using for flavoring / aroma. If anyone has any thoughts on whether this is adviseable or necessary, I'd appreciate it.
Thanks.

You can't go wrong with Tettnang. It is not overpowering and assertive. Good for making balanced brews. My favorite non-English hop. Go for it. :thumbsup:

You want to maintain the same IBU's so calculate the late addition and subtract the amount of Nugget to keep balance.

Either in the brewery or on the road
Tettnang is a great hop, and Nugget is a really solid, neutral bittering hop. They'll play nice together, but my go-to bittering hop in this particular beer would be Hallertau Nugget, derived from the parent Noble hop family of Hallertau varietals. Like Nugget, it's a higher AA%, mostly neutral hop, great for a festbier. Prost!

Isn't Hallertauer Nugget just US-bred Nugget (derived from Brewer's Gold) grown in Hallertau? Small differences due to terroir, I'm sure, but it's the same stuff.
