In the past decade Simcoe® hops have become somewhat of a darling in both craft and home brewing. True dual purpose application lets Simcoe® offer a well rounded addition to just about any recipe. Smooth bitterness is met with aromas of earth, citrus (grapefruit), and cannabis. Try it in IPAs, Wheats, Saisons, and Amber Ales.
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 flavor and clarify your wort.

Hops are a home remedy for insomnia. Can you suggest which of your varieties might be best for this purpose, please?
william Bell on Mar 1, 2022
BEST ANSWER: The sedative effect of hops is thanks to a chemical called 2-methyl-3-buten-2-ol which is a constituent of the alpha acid resin. While there’s not a lot of research determining which variety contains the most of this compound I would just assume grab the hop with the most alpha acid and you’d be good. Depending how you are consuming it (not directly hopefully) maybe in a tea of some sort, you might want to try a couple different high alpha varieties and see which one suits your taste preference. Hope that helps

Simcoe Whole Cone Hops
My system works best with whole hops in the boil. I love Simcoe but can't grow them. The beer I made with these hops is conditioning right now, but I expect will be 7.0 ABV and very dry. I made 20 gallons and will dry hop 15 gallons using some of the Simcoe hops.

Great hops but prefer the pellets
The Simcoe whole hops were full and well-packaged. I used them in a New England IPA, but overall, I prefer the pellet hops. The whole leaf hops absorb a large amount of wort, and thy are much harder to handle than the pellets.
