Grapefruit

Postby Witch Doctor Dale » Thu Dec 13, 2007 4:18 pm

A while back someone brought in an APA or AIPA that used a hop with a very strong aroma/flavor of grape fruit. Wish I took notes.
Question #1 What kind of hops are these?
Question #2 Anybody have some they would be willing to trade for Hallautou Middlefrau (spelling is a bit off here)?

1. Cascades and Centennials are know for a heavy grapefruity aroma.
2. All the Cascades I have on hand are slated for recipes and I just blew through my half-pound of Centennial making a Two Hearted Ale clone!

Having used Cascades a lot, that definetely was not it. Wasn't a hint of grapefruit, but in your face grapefruit.

I get straight grapefruit when I use a combination of Cascades and Centenniels in about equal proportions. I can't really say I care for it ;)

Domestically grown (US) Northern Brewer hops are known to be the strongest "grapefruit" hop. Cascade, Amarillo, etc. are usually more generic "citrus" aroma. Anchor Steam is 100% Northern Brewer hops, including dry hopping. Do a side-by-side with the 100% Cascade Anchor Liberty for comparison.

Let me check my stock. if I have 1.5-2 pounds, then 1/2lb can go to you and the other 1/2lb can go to bacillus.

If I only have a lb left then I need to keep 1/2lb for my next brew. And that would leave 1/2 lb for you two.

Harv,

Sounds good. I would take a half lb if available. Let me know and we can hook up for a beer somewhere and make the transaction.
