So I've got a pack of lager yeast that's probably got to be used by early May, and I'm thinking a pils or other lager with whatever hops I've got on hand for a five-gallon batch.
I've got a s***load of Willamette and Cascade, and some other odds and ends - less than an ounce of Perle, Tettnang, Simcoe and Northern Brewer. From what I've seen Willamette can be a decent substitute for the more "traditional" hops. I don't foresee using the Simcoe for this at all.
Which brings me back to the Cascade. I was thinking something like 1.5 oz for bittering, but I don't want to overwhelm the other hops with that flavor. I ALSO want to keep the beer overall as a more refreshing, crisp alternative.
