Beautiful hops, used in German Pils
Fantastic! I paired these with Hallertau Mittelfruh in a German Pils that is tasting very nice so far.

The contents were a bit higher than the weight listed on the bag (much better than lower which I’ve had from other suppliers) so don’t forget to weigh each addition.

Was trying to stick to a nobel hop mix for my wheat beer. Used more than 5 oz in a 12gallon batch and there was little to no hop character. Would use Saaz or Mittlefrueth if I were you

AA - 1.7
be careful of the AA, the 2oz I recieved was rated at 1.7; specs say 2-5, most software has it around 2.5. If you've made a recipe with 2.5 AA then go back and dbl check you may need slightly more hop to achieve same IBU.
