Have you ever done a brew without Styrians? I bet you and Vossy are the reason I can't get any down the H&G hahahaha!

It's funny you mention that, I'm collecting a load of hops from my local micro brewery on Monday,

Fuggle, Styrians, Challenger, Northdown, First Gold.

Should widen the brewing range a bit!
