Planning a brew day and need feedback, or want to share a recipe you've brewed? Post them up here (but read the sticky first :))

Brewing this at the moment using the 4 year old Bramling Cross that I got from Homebrew.ie. If it goes well we'll call it Auld Hop Ale, if not we'll call it Smelly Foot Ale in anticipation of the isovaleric acid. I opened the vac pac of 4 year old BX this evening and they certainly don't have a lot of aroma. The fresh Centennial would bowl you over by comparison.

Did you ever get a reply from the emails you sent about the hops?

Trying to come up with something witty that I can't be sued for saying, but I can't.

So the answer is no.

Lo and behold, I got a pack of hops from the same batch as yourself Tube back in late 2011, and have just found the pack with about 2oz left at the back of the freezer. Would these be ok to use as a dry-hop? Even an ounce of them with an ounce of Willamette?
