I brew a fair amount of British ales, but I'm a little ashamed to admit that I haven't played with too many British hop varieties outside of EKG, Fuggle, Challenger, and Target. I'm interested to hear what other varieties you have and what you think of them.

+1

I just got 19 ozs (9 different varieties) of British hops to go along with the maris otter, from Annapolis homebrew supply.

Also, any idea what the harvest year of these hops are?  They have varieties that are hard to get elsewhere so I am interested. …but only if they’re fresh.
I'm assuming they are fresh. When I asked about a couple varieties that were "out of stock" I was told they could access some older vintages if I wanted.
Send them an email and ask about any you're interested in.

Got a bag of #19 Crisp maris otter. Time to nail down my recipes for the next 10-11 batches.

Oh, man, that's a delicious malt.
I just mashed 5.5 lbs for a three gallon batch of best bitter. After the boil the entire house smells awesome.

Great malt. Using my normal procedure with briess or great western pale ale malt I usually get 1.044 in 3 gallons. With this I got 1.051 in 3.25 gallons.

Coming in way late but this is my favorite malt.   Been using it for over 25 years, Crisp floor malted Maris Otter in its various incarnations.  Here was a present to myself a year ago.

Is this the same malt that is sometimes called Glen Eagles?  Or is that a different Crisp M.O.?

 "1.5 - 1.8 °L - Crisp Malt - Crisp No. 19 Maris Otter Malt (formerly Gleneagles Maris Otter) is an heirloom varietal that is World renowned for its deep, rich flavor.  It is considered Heirloom because it is an old variety with a very low yield of 1.5-2 tons per acre.  Modern varietals now produce up to 4 tons per acre.  Why do farmers grow Maris Otter when new high-yield, disease resistant varietals are available? Because Craft Brewers around the World are willing to pay a premium for the complex, authentic pub flavor that Maris Otter provides."


"Please note this is the distinguished Glen Eagles version of Crisp Maris Otter. Crisp produces two types of the Maris Otter malt. A regular version malted in modern silos and this exclusive Glen Eagles version of their Maris Otter that is floor malted by hand in the traditional way. This malt is obviously great for all English style Ales but is perfectly suited for any beer where you want a rich, bready malt flavor."
