Looking to make a nice German Pils...Bitburger, Hofbrau Original, Spaten, etc.
But my first choice (Hallertau) is not available in whole cones.
I do have Saaz. Is there a good substitute for the Noble variety, that is available in whole cone form?
Checked a few suppliers online. It's easy to get pellets in nearly any variety. And there are many varieties of whole cone hops available also, including Saaz, Kent Goldings.
But not the traditional German hop. Or maybe just use Saaz in the German Pils?
