Hi all. Just some advice on Galaxy hops. Anyone used them in a lager or pilsner and if so how'd it taste?

Cheers, Grant

I tried to make a galaxy pils for my first lager using whole hop flowers. Not sure if it was the fermentation or the hops but it didn't taste right.

However, I do really like stone and wood pacific ale, which I believe is all galaxy. It's quite a light ale, and so I figured it would be ok with a pils.

Good luck.

I'd stick to using them in something like a pale ale. I know from experience they go really well in a pale ale with wheat malt. and also IPA

I used Galaxy for a 'Bitter and Twisted' Ale clone... Really nice. Dunno if i'd use them in something other than an Ale..

Be interesting to see how it comes out in a pils or lager though, let us know if you go ahead with it B)
