Title: Experimental grapefruit hops
Post by: fmader on April 19, 2014, 03:39:26 PM
I know these have been posted before within the year, but I couldn't find the thread. Did anybody ever get them and are they good?

For some reason I thought it might have been you that posted about them before. But my mind is lost so that's my excuse lol.

They seem interesting and have a super high alpha.

Nope, but that's one I'd have definitely posted if I'd found it !  Looks like my kind of hop. Think I need to get some.

I never tried their grapefruit, but my last IPA was a Summit Amarillo Citra, and to add "a little something extra" I used 1/2 ounce of Experimental Lemon hops from Yakima Hops as FWH, another 1/2 ounce at 1 minute, and one ounce in a corny keg along with an ounce of Summit as the dryhops. The beer is delicious.
