FWIW I hate summit hops. I have never had a beer made with them that I could enjoy. Total personal preference. I know folks who love them.
FWIW, I love Summit hops!
Bitter and/or aroma?
Both. One of my all time favorite recipes is a past Big Brew recipe called "Griffin Spit" (it's in the wiki). Uses all Summit hops, all at 20 min. or less. Wonderful tangerine aroma/flavor.
roast some of the pale malt, or get some roast malt, use just enough of the summit to bitter a little and the other hops near the end. shoot for medium to dark amber, lower ibu and use the london yeast and i think you could get somewhere along the profile of a scottish, but with a more pronounced ending hop flavor, aroma. something kind of unique and not provided by anyone else
If it were me I'd go English IPA using the Summit for bittering and the Glacier and EKG's for flavor/aroma.
Believe me, 90% of the time I'm ecstatic to talk beer with anyone, for any length of time (as anyone I met at NHC can probably attest).
I think it makes no sense....
I don't want to sound like my dad (his hatred of power windows on cars is legendary), but more features and gadgets often means you have less control. ProMash does the calculations I need without doing stuff that I don't need (and often don't trust). I hate seeing things like FG calculations that people trust blindly just because the software said so. It's a tool, no more, no less.
Hear, hear! I don't know how many people have told me that they do multiple batch sparges because Beersmith tells them to. It's a tool, it's NOT brewing instructions!
