Well, I have had some Brewers Gold Hops in the freezer from a local hop farm and I final used it in a beer.
The recipe is very simple because I really wanted to taste this hop.
Brewer’s Golden Bitter (Extract)
Starting Volume 5.5 gallons
Estimated IBUs = 32
6 lb Northern Brewer Gold LME
4 oz. Crystal 40L
.75 oz Brewers Gold 7 AA @ 60 min
.75 oz Brewers Gold 7 AA @ 15 min
.50 oz Brewers Gold 7 AA @ FO
1 oz Brewers Gold 4 AA @Dry hop
White Labs California Ale 001
Pitched at 64 F.
I was bottling a Porter while I brewed this, so my hop additions were not right on, but I don’t think it will be a biggie. Only a few minutes off here and there. I ended up with a final volume a little under 5 gallons and decided not to top it off with water.
I have read that Brewers Gold is a great bittering hop, and not a good flavor and aroma hop, but they smelled great. I will see in a few weeks.
