    Well, If people from other countries are happy with our hops, why must we stand back


    I like to keep some Southern Star around just to up the bitterness in my 30min boils in order to not use to much of any other hop to get to the same IBU i would have in a 60min boil ... if that makes sense

    I haven't gone out of my way to try them, but perhaps that'll change. I've only tasted them in commercial SAB "beer" and that was disappointing to say the least. My last apa was 100g Cascade and 50g Chinook on 5 min, nothing at the start of the boil. Was delicious, I'd guess I'd burn slower through hops with those AAs. I also only boil for 35min and usually just up the bittering addition to make up for the short boil.

    Do they throw a clean bittering? Anything to avoid, that p24?? seems like something to steer clear of

    I've been using either Admiral or Southern Star for purely bittering purposes in my beers, and I honestly don't think I brew well enough so people can taste the difference yet. U1/108 I've used for all kinds before, and the flavour was really smooth. I was very surprised with the effect the tiny amount of dry hopping made in that light lager of mine. I can't remember the exact numbers, but it was a small amount, like 18g or something dry hopped for 5 days in the light lager, and I dry hopped at 2C. The tropical flavour was on the money, and I actually can't even imagine anyone putting in 100g or more like in some IPAs. It'll just be unpalatable if you ask me.

    I have been using SAB hops for more than 2 years and think they are great.
    Plus cost is very low. I never order less than 1kg of a specific hop.
    Last order including delivery was an average of R270 per kg.

    Righto, so which SAB hop/s would be the best to use? Let say for two styles; Pilsner and Pale ale?

    For Pilsner use Southern Aroma. It works well, but I do consent that in my opinion Saaz works better in a Pilsner.
    For Pale ale use Southern Passion or African Queen. I prefer Southern Passion, but that's just my taste.
    I have used Southern Passion and African Queen in APA, IPA, Amber and Blonde Ale.

    Saaz is okay, it's a bit boring. Motueka is better in my opinion, a Kiwi bastard child of Saaz. Not even mentioning the Germans, makes for great Pilsner. I digress.
    How't this for a little pale ale ?
    Maris (82%)
    Munich 1 (4%)
    Cara Gold (7%)
    Melano (7%)
    Southern Passion 100.00 g 5 min
    BU:GU 0.5
    IBU 22
    ABV 4.4%

    Never used Motueka, will give it a go when I get the chance.

    Recipe looks good to me.
    Never done a hop schedule like yours.
    Usually use a high AA to get 40-50% bittering at start of boil and plenty towards end of boil for the rest, but nothing wrong with all toward end.

    I was pondering using 200g instead of anything in the boil to "hop stand" to my desired IBU. Then dry hop with another 100g, but I'll play it simple for now. I want to get all of the flavor out to showcase the hop and not be stuck with open packets of hops. I might even change the melano and munich light for a "lighter" vienna

    Beerholic is spot on on the recommendation. For your recipe I'd do 100g at 5 min and 100g for a 4 day dry hop. It's not a pale ale if you dont try hop. And passion really shines in the dry hop
