Thanks you guys, you're the greatest. Yesterday, I made a tea out of my home grown Fuggles, tasting it at 5 minutes, 20 minutes, and 40 minutes of low boil time. It tasted bitter of course, and slightly earthy. Not too grassy at all. Then I did the same thing with Northern Brewer pellets I had in the freezer. Quite grassy, and I don't think I'll be using them from now on. It really helped me to "taste sample" the hops in a tea. I had been using Norhern Brewer a lot for bittering. But, when I sat back and analyzed the taste of what the hops were doing to my finished beer, I thought "too grassy", and that I had to make a change. In my last batch, I used Cluster for bittering. I liked the result much better. Had I saved some, I would have yesterday also made a Cluster tea. Next time I will. Hops are spices, are they not? It really helps to taste them, in solution, unsweetened, as opposed to relying on someone else's characterization.
