Matching Falconer's Flight Hop Blend
« on: May 27, 2011, 01:06:22 PM »
I primarily brew German and English beers, so I am not very familiar with the West Coast Hops.

I got a 4 oz package of Falconer's Flight Blend from Hop Union at an AHA Rally.  I brewed an APA for the Memorial Day Block Party with it.  WOW this stuff is sooooo good!  Not too piney, not too citrusy, fresh and fruity!

Since I think Hop Union did this as a one off, I now need to come close to a blend of my own. 

If anyone else has used this blend, can you please help me decide what would be close?  If I remember, it ended up being about 10.3 AAU.
Now there are fields where Troy once stood....  OVID

Several hop varieties in there were experimental and aren't available.  I'm pretty sure there's Simcoe, Amarillo, and Centennila in there but I have no idea of proportions.
Life begins at 60.....1.060, that is!
