Good fresh Willamette hops are hard to beat, I love them. I've used them in a lot of of different styles and have never been disappointed with the results.

More love for Willamette from yours truly.  Love their floral character.  Need to use them more often!

I just made a London Porter that I usually finish with Willamette.  Like a genius I decided to fix that which wasn't broken and instead tried a different hops.  Amazing how much I missed the Willamette.

Willamette Cluster and Cascade are American classics IMO. Doubtful that any of them will ever go away.
Beer is my bucket list,

I’m in that boat with you. I tried something new on one of my tried and true recipes and I’m afraid I screwed the pooch on this one. I may do a rebrew to right the wrong.

Planning on brewing a Pre-Prohibition Porter this fall and using them!

Willamette Hops along with Mt. Hood (whole cone) have been two of our mainstays over the last 18 months.
A good source is Hops Direct.

Never used Willamette Hops, and I feel like I'm missing out on something  ;D
Just ordered 1 lb 2021 Willamette leaf from Hops Direct.

You will be glad you did. These are very versatile hops, suitable for many beers such as Euro-Lagers, Pils, and other beers, ales included.
Willamette can be substituted for Glacier, Fuggle, Tettnang (US), Styrian Golding, East Kent Golding.

Willamette is one of my mainstay cultivars.  It is more floral and less earthy than its parent.

We can thank Anheuser-Busch (AB) for Willamette. AB funded the research. They needed a domestic replacement for Fuggle, which was used to finish Budweiser.

That's a great description of Willamette - a more floral daughter of Fuggles. I haven't used it in years, but I might have to order some from Ted this year to try out in some lagers next spring/summer.
