If less than half of those currently directly subscribed to the HBD sent in a mere $5.00, the HBD would be able to easily meet its annual expenses, with room to spare for next year. Please consider it.

Date: Wed, 6 Oct 2010 08:34:18 -0700 (PDT) From: Calvin Perilloux <calvinperilloux at yahoo.com> Subject: Bramling Cross It appears that I have won a packet of Bramling Cross hops from a recent competition. An 11-pound packet, to be precise. But I honestly have never used these before, so I don't know what to expect. I've dug up various information, both good and not so good, about this variety, and the most encouraging bit that I have seen so far is that Bramling Cross is the hop that gives Ruddles County (bitter) its character. Since I enjoyed Ruddles County when I was living in the UK, it's not a bad thing knowing that they use Bramling Cross, but I'd certainly appreciate any and all comments that fellow homebrewers have had with these. Not repeats of what you get off the web, though! I've already got those, saying it's "interesting" and "characterful" and "underappreciated", among other (scary) things. I'm specifically looking for your own first-hand experience with Bramling Cross, if possible. Thanks, Calvin Perilloux Middletown, Maryland, USA Return to table of contents

Rowan, I feel qualified to answer your question. Bishops Finger uses Target hops (grown in Kent) for bittering and East Kent Goldings as the late hop.
