    Title says it all. I usually use Hallertau M. but am almost out and open to suggestion.

    Hallertau here too, but Saaz would be a close second.

    Saaz, although I've been pretty impressed with Sterling.

    Tettanger for sure. Saaz can be unpredictable and doesn’t keep as well as Tettnang. German tradition is also reliable.

    Can't do it...some lagers are Helles or IPL and require a milder hop presence and flavor and some are Pils style that simply must have the spicy punch. Not to mention that most noble hops are low alpha and much larger quantities are required for bittering.
    For me it's the big 3...Magnum, Mittlefruh and Saaz.
