Has anyone here used styrian wolf hops?

Postby rats_eyes » Fri Dec 29, 2017 11:40

HI all. I'm planning a pale ale of some kind and I have a pack of styrian wolf which i'm thinking of using for late additions and a dry hop. I've never used these before but the profile sounds right. Do any of you have any experience with these?

Yep Loved them in an IPA ... With Styrian Dana IIRC

I might still have the tail end of a pack of Dana in the freezer, maybe this is my chance to finish it off.

Thanks for the feedback. I was hoping from the profile I'd read that i might end up with something similar to Fyne Ales Jarl, which has probably been my favourite low abv pale this year. Think i'll brew this on sunday morning.

The main hops in Jarl are Citra apparently. I’ve found a recipe online for it, it’s a cracking pint.

Just finish drinking my first beer using Styrian Cardinal and have to say it's superb. I thought the same with Dana. Time to check more of the new Styrian hops

I mixed the wolf with the remaining dana hops from my freezer and this is now in a corny with a dry hop .Hopefully it'll be tasting good this time next next week.

It's a great pint right enough. Don't think I've ever had a bad pint from Fyne. The "superior IPA" on cask is a dream as well! My beer's going to be a bit stronger than Jarl, my OG is 1.054, so a bit more body. I'll report back once it's ready.

My styrian wolf / dana pale has now been in a corny for a week or so. Right now it reminds me of a challenger single hop, very herbal, which doesn't really fit the profile. Regardless, i quite like it. We'll see how it develops.
