I’ve seen a lot of new varieties (or at least new to me) show up at the places I buy from this year. I’m always interested in trying new stuff. So far I’ve brewed with Whitbread Goldings, Pacific Jade, and UK Pilgrim. I have several more in the freezer waiting their turn. Herkules is one I’m anxious to use. Last year I tried the Falconers Flight blend and liked it, I just used it again as well.
Anybody taking advantage of the new varieties? I really haven’t tried any of the beers above jus yet, most are bottled and will be ready in a couple of weeks.
And on a related topic, I’m not sad that theres a shortage of certain hops and I think by the time the growers ramp up production we brewers will be on to the next hot hop.
And sorry I forgot about the hop subforum, if someone could move this I’d appreciate it.
