NB has Falconer's Flight 7c's and Zythos
« on: December 13, 2011, 10:20:12 AM »
I got an email from NB today, they have some new products.  I'm assuming the FF are 2011 crop since they list them as a new product, but the others must be the new blends that Denny had heard about.

http://www.northernbrewer.com/shop/falconer-s-flight-hop-pellets-1-oz.html
Typical Alpha: 10.5%. A blend of PNW hops with tropical, citrus, floral, lemon, and grapefruit tones.

http://www.northernbrewer.com/shop/falconer-s-seven-seas-blend-hop-pellets-1-lb.html
Typical Alpha: 9-11%. A proprietary hop blend from HopUnion that includes 7 of the "c" hops along with a few experimental varieties. The citrus/grapefruit character associated with Cascade and Centennial is there, alongside fruity, spicy, and earthy notes that make for a complex impression.

http://www.northernbrewer.com/shop/zythos-blend-hop-pellets-1-oz.html
Typical Alpha: 10-12%. A proprietary blend of hops from HopUnion, designed for complex flavor in IPAs and similar hoppy American styles. Zythos is strongly aromatic, with tangerine, lemon, grapefruit, and pine notes. Try it in place of Amarillo, Sorachi Ace, or Simcoe.

I'm getting ready to place an order and I'll be adding some FF to the order.

Thanks Tom!  :)

There's always room for pellets.

Also, the falconers flight is out of stock for the pound. Wonder if that will change.
