The Single Hop Series available at MoreBeer! uses the same base recipe kit with different finishing hops. This way, you can take two beers that are virtually the same and identify the differences in just the hop flavors and aromas. The base recipe is a fairly simple Pale Ale: Ultralight malt extract, Crystal 15L, Magnum bittering hops, and then the single hop for the rest of the additions. Do you really want to learn how Citra varies from Amarillo? Is pure Simcoe the way to go? Order a kit from MoreBeer! today and try your hand at your own hop experimenting.
Try a few of these, and find your favorite hop! Or, brew one and have a friend brew the other for a taste off!
