New Aged Hopped German Pilsner
« on: May 19, 2015, 02:17:24 PM »
I am thinking about brewing a German Pilsner in the next couple of weeks. However, I am thinking of throwing a twist into it. Normally, you would use the classic noble hops. This time, I want to use some of the new breed Continental varieties, like Hull Mellon, Hallertau Blanc, Mandarina Bavaria, etc...

So here is the mental exercise of the day. If you were going to make a Pilsner with these new Continental breeds, which would you use for bittering, favor, aroma, dry hop, etc?

Due to the fact that I really like Mandarina Bavaria, I would use it all the way through in a Pilsner.

+1.  I'd bitter with Magnum, then do a late blend with Mandarina and Hull. Though Mandarina by itself is nice.

perhaps im cheap , but feel like i'm wasting mandarina as early bittering addition!

Yep.  It's just a pure late hop to me.

I brought a Pacifica dry-hopped Pils to NHC last year. I REALLY enjoyed that beer and will continue to use Pils to test dry hops.

Pacifica is NZ-grown Hallertau, but its definitely a different animal.
