Brew day: “Get fresh with me” American Ale


I was lucky to be able to pick almost a pound and a half of Nugget hops at Ohio Hops in Galloway.  Nice folks.  Brian was great – I recommend him for all your Ohio Hop needs!  Anyway, I created a recipe with a single hop to showcase the flavor, and I think it will be a good one:

Please brew it and let me know how it goes.  The hop numbers are for dry, to keep th AA calculations right.  You can substitute fresh whole hops for the dry by multiplying by 5 or so. I used 10, 6 and 4.

    when will you post the Scotch recipes?

    As in Scotch Bourbon?  Probably never - the licensing is very expensive and time consuming.

    Sounds like it will be amazing.  I just purchased some Cascade pellets from Northern Brewer for the pale ale I will be doing next weekend (my first attempt at homebrewing).  I was not able to find any info on an Ohio Hops in Galloway after a quick search, I'd love to buy local next for future batches.  Would you be able to get me their contact info?

    Oh well, if only you were a lockpicking ninja, you could get away with it...
