I am looking to brew the Amber Ale listed at homebrewtalk.
The Hops bill is:
- 1 ounce centennial (to get you to 28-29 IBUs) 60 minutes (I used an ounce of 7.7 and .25 ounce of 8.5% AAUs)
- 1 ounce Liberty (4.5%) 30 minutes
- 1 ounce crystal (3.3%) 2 minutes
I don't have any of the above hops, but I do have:
I'd rather not buy 3 new packs of hops for this beer, but I could go for one.
Looking at the Hop Substitute Chart, I think I could replace the Liberty and Crystal in the recipe with Hallertau? (I'm looking to brew some german ales next anyways)
From what I've read, the first 60 min addition is for bittering rather than flavouring, so it shouldn't matter too much what I substitute it for, provided it's of a similar bitterness. Is that correct?
Given this, which of the hops I have, and how much, should I substitute?
