American Wheat - Which Hops?
« on: September 17, 2003, 05:13:04 PM »
Anyone have a good hops suggestion for a light American wheat beer -- I'm thinking something along the lines of an Anchor Wheat from a wheat extract recipe?

 I would probably go with a American variant of a traditional Germany wheat hops such as Liberty or Mt Hood.

 Both are variants from the Hallertauer family which is widely used in Germany style wheat beers and would probably do well in a US wheat style.

I second the vote for Liberty or Mt. Hood. Great hops!
