    Just picked up some Vic Secret, Centennial, Eureka, Galaxy and their juicy hop pack. Can’t go wrong at YVH.

    Willamette is my favorite hop nobody craves. Good for saisons, cream ales, American lagers...

    Ekunot looks like a good deal. Anyone have experience with us tettnanger?

    Never used it but would definitely be willing to try at a good price.

    There is some debate over the parentage of US Tettnanger. There seems to be some consensus that it is fuggles-like, if not actually fuggles. Here's one version: https://beerandbrewing.com/dictionary/d3LUUKrZ9D/american-tettnanger-hop/
    You'll find many descriptions that ignore the uncertainty, with some saying it is a sub for German tettnang, and others saying it is a sub for fuggles. I have a bunch in my freezer, but I don't have a strategy yet for their use. If they are like a German noble hop or like Fuggles, I think they would be well-suited to blending with German, English, and American hops to make all sorts of balanced beer styles. I am a little skeptical about giving them a very hop forward platform to take center stage, like an American IPA.

    Earthiness vs spiciness? I'd be disappointed to brew a maibock that tasted like a forest floor.

    I use half Willamette and half home-grown Cascades in my American Brown. I like the herbal/earthy notes Willamette brings.

    You could always try Argentinian cascade, reputed to be comparable to Hallertau or Tettnang. Tongue in cheek, because of their bad reputation. Back in the old hop crisis days, I had some. Armed with the info that if you use them like cascade, you'll be disappointed, I used them in Belgians, where I was hopping lightly and relying on yeast character and malt to carry the beer. They were not of a quality that convinced me they would be great in a German beer, but I didn't have a high quality example. I think they suffered from poor storage,
