Yeast
Wyeast 3463 Forbidden Fruit
Wyeast 1882 Thames Valley II
Wyeast 1968 London ESB
Wyeast 2633 Oktoberfest Blend

uthristy, what's the difference between the Castle and F-B pils that you need both?
Beer is like porn. You can buy it, but it's more fun to make your own.

What's falconer's flight hops like?

I was at the excellent Free State Brewing Company in Lawrence KS today. They do a "Hopjack" ale from time to time that is the same malt bill and varying hop bills, usually a single variety. We walk in and, as usual, there are around 20 -30 people standing behind the bar seats and my wife gets Hopjack. I tasted it and guessed Columbus. When we snagged a seat and looked at the beer list, it was Falconer's Flight.

Not saying it was a ringer for Columbus as I kinda felt it was that or Simcoe, but maybe that gives you some idea of what it is like. Definitely American.

I haven't used the F-B before and the price caught my eye.

Don't know but since I can't get a pound of simcoe decided to givem a try>

I've used FF on my last couple brews.  it's got the tropical fruit character of Citra, the dankness of Columbus, the tangerine of Amarillo, the lemon of Centennial...a very nice American style hop combo.

Each of these have apparently been "hand selected" to give you all of those flavors.  Yeah, hand selected...

Sounds mighty tasty nonetheless, aside from the silly marketing jargon.

does it count as a SMaSH if the hops are a blend?
