Hops for banana bread?

Post by RobWalker » Fri Jun 08, 2012 2:29 pm

Naturally gotta keep it quite simple because of cakey and spicy flavours, any suggestions? I'm thinking of Aurora for bittering (high alpha will mean lower flavour) and Saaz for flavour because they're a little spicy but not overpowering...

Just done one by accident. I used EKG for a small amount of bittering then EKG and Cascade at 15 mins. The yeast was Youngs beer and wine yeast (it is my emergency stock yeast for general purpose use) Accidentally fermented about 24C and has turned out like Wells Banana Bread!
