Subject: What kind of hops do I want?
Date: 1992-03-31 21:00:00 GMT
First of all, I want to thank everyone who sent me information
about where I can get hop rhizomes from. It turns out a store
right here in Ottawa is ordering rhizomes from Washington, and
is doing all of the paperwork importing them. So all I need to
do now is select a couple of kinds. I figure (being stupid) that
I'll only order two - one for bittering, and one for aroma. I
use extract kits exclusively (because of time), and I mostly make
dark beer (pale ale, bitters, and browns) - is two kinds of hops
enough to get by?
What I would like the net to do for me now is help me select the
kind of hops I should order. I can get the Alpha acid content
and stability of some of the hops from Papazian, but not all, and
he does not mention the yield from the different types. I know that
the net contains all of this information.
The kinds of rhizomes available are: cascade, centennial, chinook
hallertauer, herzbruker, mount hood, nuggett, perle, tettnanger,
williamette, bullion, kent goldings, and northern brewer.
Thanks in advance,
