Description

Universally the first choice for an aroma hop in English Ales. Very mild with pleasant, flowery overtones. Most hops stand out against the malt. This unusual hop actually blends in and complements the malt flavors. You truly cannot add too much at the end of a boil as an aroma/flavor hop. Whole cone hops are typically the preffered format for dry hopping as they maintain contact with the beer by floating, they are easier to remove than pellets and they add a unique character to the beer. Adding whole cone hops directly to the mash tun is also a great way to add an extra layer of hop flavor and help clarify your wort. Often referred to as Kent Goldings, British Kent Goldings, BKG, or East Kent Goldings.

Because you have your EKG on back order for the pellets

My kettle drains will choke on pellets. I need whole/leaf hops or plugs.

Whole U.K. hops
The Goldings are well packaged and at a reasonable cost. What is not good about this? :)

Hardly "whole" cones
Three stars might be generous. Bought the 2 oz. package of "whole cones" but there were very few cones in their entirety. It was mostly pieces -- a lot of leaves, and stems (I have never had so many stems in a package of hops) so that was a bit disappointing. Flavor will have to wait and see as I just brewed and it's still in the primary.
