After having an IPA that was primarily hopped with Sterling recently, I want to give that a shot in an APA. I have been using it here and there and really like how versatile it is.I love Sterling for the same reason. It's herbal/spicy noble-like at low-to moderate hopping rates, then starts to get some citrus as you push the rates higher. Motueka is another hop like that. It has noble character, but then also gives lime zest and lemongrass characters along with it. The thing is that neither is super oily, so they get lost when blended in with more typical IPA hops pretty easily.
Simcoe and Amarillo....I don't care for most of the new ultra tropical fruity ones.
I already checked my local goodwill before posting on here. no luck
Check again, they get new stuff in every day.
I get all my glassware at Goodwill. I recently got a dimpled half-liter mug and a bow tie glass for about $2 total.
I scaled up from samples to get what I liked. I'll have to check my notes later to get what I arrived at. I'll post .
platinum strain?S-189 has been around for many years. It's a great dry lager yeast, especially for maltier styles.
Is there a liquid equivalent or one close to it? Origins?
A quick search seems to point to WLP885 Zurich Lager which is a platinum strain.
