ella and summer

Postby mark1964 » Sun Aug 30, 2015 15:52

was given some hops ella and summer off a local brewery. Trouble is they have been mixed together. Ella has an ibu of around 15-16 i think and summer is low around 6 ish so i was going to use for an aroma hop. Just thinking of making a beer with them and throwing a few in. Dont know how it will turn out though

ITS TIME 4 ANOTHER BEER

Good plan, I'd do a pale ale bitter to about 35-40 with a nice clean bittering hop then throw a load in at 10min, steeped and dry hop. :thumb:

The worst that can happen is.................beer. :drink:

I used summer late on with galaxy and vic secret in a pale ale. It came out very nice indeed. I have just kegged an Ella SMaSH, cant tell you how it tastes yet as it only went in the keg yesterday

A fine beer may be judged with only one sip, but it's better to be thoroughly sure.
