I see descriptors like 'geranium' so I guess I shouldn't be surprised. I guess I know what geraniums taste/smell like now...

Ingredients / Ahtanum

Curious what others experiences are with this hop. I have a fresh keg of a smash ahtanum and kind of surprised by the hop character. I have used it before but never by itself and am getting just a crazy floral thing backed by a bit of citrus and grass. It combines with some spiciness to almost be perfumy. No real point here just to see what others get out of this hop. I have seen it as a sub for cascade, Amarillo, and centennial but it seems pretty different to me. Fwiw these were sealed 2015 bags from yvh. 4.4% aa I think.

I have a standing offer if anyone ever wants feedback on a beer, I'm happy to provide it.  Just pm me for my snail mail address.


I may take you up on that as it is my main reason for entering comps. Never shipped beer but I appreciate your offer and may make it happen once I get my inventory back up.

Hersbrucker are more spicy and slightly floral, as opposed to stonefruit IMO.

Edit - I saw you say dry hops. Alt really isn't a beer to dry hop FWIW. Not sure if you meant that.

Hmm, okay.  Well, back to the drawing board.  I love experimentation so I might try something different.

No harm in making the beer you want to drink but for stonefruit you will need some different hops. I took an Altbier recipe and added some cascade and citra hops at flameout effectively making it something like an Amber ale. It was delicious.

I guess I'm going for a malt forward Alt with some spice and very subtle stonefruit. I want good head retention and medium body. I've adjust my grist bill to be:

8.75# German Pils
2# Munich
1# Caramunich
.25# Carafa I

After changing the Grist bill significantly I'm sitting at:

1.060 OG
38.3 IBUs
16.1 SRM
6.1% est. ABV

Just out of curiosity, where are you hoping to get stonefruit from?

Zum Uerige is my favorite, but it has the least malt flavor and the most bitterness.

Brewtopalonian, Schlüssel and Schumacher have mor Munich malt character. You could google Jamils Cowboy Alt to get something in the way of Schlüssel.

You can go higher on the Munich if you want.

Yeah I have never brewed that recipe but want to for comparison sake. I have had Grimm Brothers version which I believe has a GABF medal in the category but is on the other side of the spectrum.

I have been wanting to brew a more traditional alt but I usually end up with an Alt influenced Amber Ale because I my propensity to hybridize. I digress...

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Attenuation question

When I was extract brewing I had the same issues with attenuation. I started subbing in some plain old table sugar for a portion of the fermentables which made a huge difference. It looks like that tip is included in dmtalyor's post...
