I have a bit of a Bo Pils thing happening atm, I'm quite enjoying them very pleasing summer beers.

This is my first one, made it for the other half as she's been on my back for ages about it. I just made the one out of BCS as a start, so if that holds up I'll tinkle with it a bit

Got one in my glass right this minute, and one on the boil too. I've started only using 30% Boh Pils grain 65% Pils and 5% Melanoidin - as that Hanka grain can be overwhelming I reckon and gives a corn husk flavour.

Also - subbing a bit of the Saaz for Hallertau gives a nice edge. 80:20 Saaz:Hallertau. Mmmmmmm.

Kind of a Boh Pils from right on the border with Barvaria.

Mmm just the thought of those ingredients working together with 2124 is making me drool.

Got 4 different types of Saaz in the freezer, including latest harvest T45's, but these look very tempting, especially at that low AA.

Pondering...

Most of the times I've bought bulk plugs on the cheap they've been pretty ordinary in terms of quality, however I didn't go into it with my eyes shut. Most often you get what you pay for... ...however, with low- alpha noble hops for bittering it is pretty much a given that there will be another addition of a different variety that takes up the character slack. At least, that's how I look at it. :icon_cheers:

excuse my stupidity, but are plugs the same as pellets from the recipe, i.e 35g is the same if it's plugs or pellets ?

thanks

Hop plugs have less surface area exposure to wort and thus are less efficient for bittering, i.e. more of it is required to impart an equal amount of
bitterness compared to pellets.

Sounds good to me, just over $10 each including postage. Do you want me to order?

EDIT: Did a freezer inventory last week, 6.8kg hops, 35 varieties, 1.6kg Saaz... But I neeeed those plugs!
