Thanks to all you brewmasters for sharing. One of the reasons I asked about single hops beer is that started growing hops in Sweden using rizhomes from seven American varieties that a friend bought for me, and I collected in L.A. in May. First year harvest was not big (totally 10 oz/300 grams dried weight), but all grew to the max height of the trellis (13 / 16 ft). The varieties that I managed to get were Magnum, Cascade, Zeus, Chinook, Nugget, Willamette and Tettang. The "+1" comment stuck, do you see any good combinations using my limited hops stock, or do I need other varieties?
Play around. You might discover a great blend that you didn't think would work. I don't see anything there I'd be repelled by. But if you want a recommendation, I could probably live off of various combinations of Willamette, Cascade and Tettnanger. I'm considering planting hops next year and those 3 are at the top of my list.
