I am using Warrior as a bittering hops in my IPA. Looking to fine tune the recipe by lessening the bitterness a touch or two. Can you provide me a few other hops in lesser degrees of bitterness? Thanks Q.

Could you use less hops, or add them 10 minutes later in the boil? There are lots of hops that are less bitter (weight for weight), but whether they are a good fit depends upon the recipe.

Sorry this isn't directly answering your question, but I think you can get what you are looking for (less bitterness) without having to substitute.

  • I am making good beer, but still learning. Less bitterness is the goal, I didn't know there was more then one way to get there. Thanks.

  • Cool. Yes, hops are pretty flexible, there's many ways to use them to get different results.

Nugget is a little lower on the alpha side, so that may work. But I agree with mdma, adjust the amount of hops being used and/or when they are added.
