First nugget hops use
« on: October 10, 2021, 03:13:14 pm »
I brewed a simple apa six days ago with nugget hops. It's done: 1.045-1.008.
I'm going to wait until after it's bottled and carbed before I make a final judgement on the hops.

Nice of you to give the hops a chance to do it's thing. Go go lupulins!

I'm happy with this batch, but I think nugget hops would go better in a stronger darker beer.

As I get to the last six pack of this batch I'm thinking that  I wouldn't use nugget again in a pale ale. I used the last of it in the stout I bottled yesterday.

I'm now drinking a stout bittered with nugget that I like a lot more than the pale ale with it.
