TT Landlord with extra late hops?
« on: October 02, 2013, 07:25:25 AM »
I'm going to brew a Landlord best bitter based on the Northern Brewer clone recipe here:

http://www.northernbrewer.com/documentation/allgrain/AG-Innkeeper.pdf

I'll stick with the 60/45/5 hop additions in the recipe (Fuggle / EKG / Styrians), but I'm thinking I will also add an ounce of homegrown Willamette flowers at 5 minutes.  My homegrown hops smell nice, but I'm not at the point where I like to rely on them for my sole additions at any stage.  Adding them in this way seems like a good way to use them.

The extra ounce of Willamette should only add a few IBUs at most, but I'm wondering... for those who have brewed this beer before, do you think that 2 ounces of 5 minute hops is too much for the style?

I say go for it! Willamette should be a fine complementary hop for the style, and should not be too overwhelming.
So it goes.

Thanks for the reply.  After posting, it occurred to me to move the Willamettes to flameout.  I think that's what I'll do.
