I'll have a best bitter brewing on Thanksgiving, and would appreciate any feedback on this particular hop. I would be using it as a flavor addition...maybe.

My other options are to use either Willamette or Glacier in its place.

What do you think of Northern Brewer as the bittering hop in a best bitter?

I have goldings growing in my backyard (WA) and use them in all my english ales. They are great.

The combination of Northern Brewer with Goldings is something I do quite often.

Sorry to be late to the party, Jim, given that if your brew session went as planned, you already made your decision.

I am, so far, a fan of U.S. Goldings. I don't have enough experience with them to make definitive statements as to their character, but my limited experience with them yields an opinion that you might expect: English Golding character, but with a little citrusy American twist. What a fantastic combination for, say, an English "Summer Ale" or a U.S. or English Blonde Ale. (Oops, I'm giving away my recipe plans.)

I like them so much, I've made a big bet with them for the spring competitions. Next up, I'm going to use them exclusively in a Belgian Tripel. Call me a madman.

I love Northern Brewer in any application. I dig that rustic quality.

Thanks. I went with 1oz of Goldings at 15mins. I opted for Willamette in place of Northern Brewer for bittering since I don't have any Fuggles. Save the Northern Brewer for my stout.
