Has anyone tried using Golden Hop flowers to brew with?
Its a particular variety of hops grown for ornamental purposes. Humulus lupulus "Aurea"
Its been around for a very long time so i would assume its origins are likely english.....
Curious to see if it can be used....

Google reckons it's derived from Saaz, so maybe try a Pilsner?

Will be difficult without a roughish guess on AA%. Flameout hops?

If it's actually derived from Saaz I myself would start calculating around 2.5 to 3%.

 Maybe even lower, seeing as it's bred to be ornamental , but....some of the Saaz derivatives - Riwaka, Summer and Motueka, for example , Are twice  that .

All hops are good for beer. Go for it.

This reminds me of my introduction to Chilli when I thought that first pretty little Habanero was an Ornamental chilli.  

Wow!
