I need to order some hops for my English ales and Irish stout, and I'm trying to decide between:
Sonnet™ Golding c.v. Leaf 2011 NEW CROP Size: 1 Lb. 6.6% $ 18.60
East Kent Golding Leaf Hops NEW 2011 CROP Size: 1 Lb. 4.6% $ 14.65
First Gold UK Leaf Hops NEW 2011 CROP SIZE: 1 LB 5.1% $ 12.15
Fuggle UK Leaf Hops NEW 2011 CROP Size: 1 Lb. 4.3% $ 14.35
Clearly the First Gold gives the most bang for the buck for bittering, which is all I use it for in my stout, so I might get a pound of that. I liked the Sonnet golding, but I'm not liking the price this year. I think I'd pick the EKG over the Fuggles, but I'm open to being convinced. I'll probably get a pound each of two varieties, so what do you guys think?
