Use them wherever you would use Fuggle. I personally like them in porters.

Do they have the associated fuggles stigma, ie tastes like dirt?

I was thinking of using them in an IPA. Maybe not such a good idea?

I think they have a little less dirt than Fuggles. But maybe that's just me.

Will be fine in an IPA as long as they are mixed with something else, esp. EKG.

I love Willamette. I just used some in an ESB.

I use them in my Porterhouse ale. Pale malt, crystal 60L, a little chocolate, a little black patent, and a touch of wheat malt.
1 oz Willamette 60 min. 1/2 oz. Willamette 10 min. 1/2 oz. Willamette dry hop secondary.
Ferment with Munton's dry yeast.

Brew on,
jeff

As the others suggest, Willamettes are an Americanized version of Fuggles. I consider them a little less "earthy." They are the finishing hops I use in my St. Chuck's porter. Try them and see how you like them compared to English Fuggles.

I was going to mix them with goldings so maybe I'll go right ahead

Willamette has become one of my favorites for bitter, of course mixed with Kent Goldings.

BTW

Hops Direct has them for 10.50 a pound. Prices for others have dropped a bit.

Absolutely Nothin! Say it again y’all.

Willamette tend to get a bad rap, but I find them quite pleasant in small amounts. I dry hop my house amber with ~1/2 ounce, and they are cleanly earthy and floral at that amount.

I like them for bittering but I do not like them for flavor or aroma hops.

I have found that they often give a somewhat metallic flavor when used late in the boil

Use 50/50 with Cascade for finishing in an APA. It's a nice blend.

I would if Cascades didn't cost their weight in gold over here! US hops are just SOOOOO expensive. I got these from a local brewery so he gave them to me for a few quid. If I were to buy them from a Homebrew shop I'd be looking at close to £25 worth.

I've used Willamette in belgians when I was out of Goldings and they were fine.

I've used them in porters, brown ales, pale ales. I've even seen IPA recipes that call for them. Pretty universal hop for most ale styles, I'd say.
