AG4 – Royate Hill Mystery Single Hop Bitter

I was given some hops to pick for use in a mystery beer to quench the thirst of apple pressers. I have no idea what the hops are for sure – they smell like they might be Challenger – or what the alpha acid was. I had 400g of them undried and used them fresh at the rate  – 200g @ 60 mins; 100g @ 10 mins; 100g @ 0 mins.

The grain bill was concocted from what I had in stock, which wasn’t much but enough to do something I hope will turn out well. I’ll just have to see what the crowd thinks!
