Hop Me Please
« on: March 30, 2011, 03:11:31 PM »
I'm planning to do a test run on the new 1/2 barrel system this weekend to feel out my efficiency %.  Well, if that darn BarleyCrusher ever shows up?  I'm was wanting to do something cheap and basic so I'm gonna go with a simple semi-hoppy American Brown around 1.050 and 30-50 ibu.  I've only done a couple of English Brown ales over the years and used mainly UK hops.  Does anyone have a good hop combinations ideas that work well for this style?

My American brown uses a combo of Tettnanger, Columbus, and Chinook.  I'm a big fan of combining Amwerican and German hops for American styles.

Yes, but how do you feel about the cigar?

You came to a beer forum & thought it said "hump"?
Wow.
Why would anyone want to drink stale beer?

I hope it was supposed to be funny.

You're supposed to smoke 'em.

Well, getting back to the question, I like Willamette in my American browns.  Yum!
Is that a counter-pressure bottle filler in your pocket, or are you just happy to see me?

I agree with the Willamettes.
Nuggets are also a pretty good option.

My LHBS was out of just about everything I wanted except Willamette.  I ended up going with this odd kitchen sink concoction to about 46 IBU.
