Never used Willamette Hops, and I feel like I'm missing out on something
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.
Recived Williamette hops.
What I do with whole cone hops is slighly chew on one.
Very distintct difference when compared to smelling.
You get an idea what the taste in the beer will be like.
Very good, I might prefer this over Mt Hood.
Next batch will be a SMASH, RiverBend extra pale ale malt, and Williamette.
