Tettnanger
« on: September 09, 2022, 08:01:00 am »
Just ordered 1 lb 2022 Tettnanger dried leaf from Hops Direct.
From what I read they're good, never used these hops before.

I really like them. Of course, they're perfect for German styles, work great for Belgians. I even pair them with Cascade for my Nick Danger Porter recipe and it's a great combo.

I like them - they are in my (middle-low AA) German hop choice along with Mittlefruh or Hallertauer for alternates for late hop additions in my lagers.  I bitter with Magnum, typically.  I hope you like them.  Cheers!

Good to know.
Guess you can't go wrong with the Noble Hop family.

If you ordered from Hops Direct, these are likely US Tettnang rather than German.  US Tettnang are supposedly Fuggles, rather than a US-grown Tettnanger. I've only ever used German Tett, so I can't comment on the flavor difference, but YMMV on these.

US Tett is not a lot like Fuggles, but it's not exactly like German Tett either. I find the German has more floral/herbal quality to it. At least that was true 15-20 years ago.

I just brewed an American wheat with tettnanger and willammette.

Last hop season (2021) 1 lb Willamette and 1 lb Liberty (both dried leaf) were ordered, 4 ounces are left.
Hops are vacuum sealed in 2 oz increments.  This year 1 lb Willamette and 1 lb Tettnanger will be ordered.
Willamette dried leaf are not available yet from Hops Direct.  Ordered Tettnanger the first day available.

Great minds think alike :>
