My next beer will be inspired by my status as a San Francisco Bay Area native.
More Beer carries a boutique malt from Admiral Malting. Admiral is a malthouse up the freeway from me in Alameda, CA. I am going to use their Maiden Voyage Pale Ale malt. More beer says "Maiden Voyage is a pale malt with light golden color, a robust earthy and sweet aroma, and subtle biscuity flavor." OK, I will go with that. Probably a single malt mash.
Yeast will be a California Common. I have had good results with that and it keeps the SF Bay Area connection going.
I do not know of any SF Bay Area oriented hops. Off the top of my head, Mt Hood is penciled in.
There are so many new hops have become available during my of 5-6 year pause of homebrewing. Any other hop(s) I should consider? No American citrus, I get enough citrus in my beer diet.
What about Nelson Sauvin hops? What I read about them sound interesting.
What say the ever so wise members of this Brews-Bros forum?
