just looking at making or trying a recipe with moteuka but not sure what to run with.
is this better for pilsners or more apa's and which other hops go well with it.
by the smell it seems to be half citus half noble hop?
would like to try a single hop recipe first to get a feel for it's flavours.
any suggestions?
thanks

This is probably my favourite hop. I just finished a keg of apa that had b-saaz and galaxy late and dry hopped. It was awesome.

Motueka is one of my favourite hops. IMO you can use it in ANY hoppy style beer. I've done an all Motueka American Brown that was kinda similar to Mac's Sassy Red. It combines very well with Cascade. Tony's LCBA clone in the recipe database is fantastic and uses Motueka and Cascade. I think True South brewery use Motueka in their pilsner along with another hop, maybe Nelson Sauv and that's a tasty drop.

I've never used it early in the boil, but I can tell you it's amazing late. I recently dry hopped with it in a wit beer (American style) and it was fantastic!
Someone recently said somewhere is reminds them of NS, I think it's similar but just as good.
Next time I plan on using I'll be making a massive hop bomb with it.

This is also a great hop for a german pilsner style beer.
Definitely a nice pale ale etc. hop as well, but goes great in a pils.

Bitter with it or your favourite clean bittering hop to around 35 IBU with a shade over 1g/litre as a 15 minute addition

Self confessed Motueka and NS lover here. The vast majority of my beers are brewed with these hops, usually by themselves.

Here are my 2c worth...

Motueka is one of my favourite hops. IMO you can use it in ANY hoppy style beer.
YEP

Probably is quite good as a bittering, but it REALLY shines when used late (ish). Flavour and aroma additions are divine...

I've never used it early in the boil, but I can tell you it's amazing late. I recently dry hopped with it in a wit beer (American style) and it was fantastic!

Completely agree. B Saaz to my palette is remarkably similar in some ways to NS but in other ways it's also very different.
NS is more winelike, B Saaz is more spicy.
Would be very interested in any "hop bomb" done with this hop....Recipe????

i wonder how it'd go with ross' ns summer ale recipe instead of using ns.
Would go wonderfully well. Substitute same IBU's with B Saaz (different quantity's obviously) and it'll be a cracker.

NS used to by my favourite hop, but it has been knocked off the mantle piece by B Saaz. Anything you can do with NS you can do with B Saaz, but the flavour is slightly different and it's also a little more forgiving than NS can be.

I no chill, and bitter to between 15-20 IBU'S worth at 30min, and then another 15-20 IBU's at 15min. Makes a kick ass beer.

Dry hopping is a wonderful idea too.

If Lord Raja Goomba is on, he'll likely chime in with an opinion also, as he's a NZ hop nut too...

I made a hefeweizen with motueka. The slight spiciness was delicious (40 minute addition). I think making a hopfenweise with this hop would be the bomb. And Tony's LCBA :icon_drool2:

Try this : http://yeastieboys.posterous.com/private/yCmgJxeHrs (Yeastie Boys Digital IPA)

It isn't single hop but it is a damn good drop with the Motueka Hop shining through nicely. I usually buy two-three of these a week. A shame it's a limited release but awesome that these guys made it an opensource brew so others could make it. I know Im going to soon :D

The Mad Brewers Hoppy Hefe is late hopped with Motueka and Citra.

These two work really well together in that beer and i will definately be using them together in an APA soon. :icon_drool2:

Doesn't get much easier than this, and the result is a cracker....

OG: 1046-1050
90% Base malt
10% Munich 1 or Carapils

15-20 IBU's at 30min
15-20 IBU's at 15min

Whirlfloc at 5min

Ferment at 17/18 with Danstar Nottingam

Mash at 65/66

should end up at just shy of 5% ABV before bottling.

(i seem to prefer the Munich with B Saaz, and the Carapils with NS. Dont know why...)

Piss easy beer to make, and it tastes great....
