Title: Hop Me Please
Post by: JKL on March 30, 2011, 03:11:31 PM
I'm planning to do a test run on the new 1/2 barrel system this weekend to feel out my efficiency %.  Well, if that darn BarleyCrusher ever shows up?  I'm was wanting to do something cheap and basic so I'm gonna go with a simple semi-hoppy American Brown around 1.050 and 30-50 ibu.  I've only done a couple of English Brown ales over the years and used mainly UK hops.  Does anyone have a good hop combinations ideas that work well for this style?

My American brown uses a combo of Tettnanger, Columbus, and Chinook.  I'm a big fan of combining Amwerican and German hops for American styles.

'Hop me please'   is that a euphamism?! I had to do a doubletake... I thought it said hump me please...

Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar.

Yes, but how do you feel about the cigar?

I don't like cigars, they don't make me feel good... at all.

I hope it was supposed to be funny.

You're supposed to smoke 'em.

Well, getting back to the question, I like Willamette in my American browns.  Yum!

I agree with the Willamettes.
Nuggets are also a pretty good option.

My LHBS was out of just about everything I wanted except Willamette.  I ended up going with this odd kitchen sink concoction to about 46 IBU.

Galena/Willamette @60min
Galena@45
Willamette@30
Willamette@15
Columbus@flameout

.......We'll C Saturday?
