Default chinook hops

i'm getting ready to brew a Pacific Nortwest red ale tomorrow and got some chinook hops for bittering w/ out checking the AA's on 'em 1st. man, are they low this year or what? only 9.9%. gonna have to add more at bittering time!

also, anyone ever use the Wyeast Northwest Ale yeast? it's only my second time to use Wyeast, but still making a starter today.

i've not used the chinook yet this year, but i did notice the ek goldings are a little bit stronger...

i was dissapointed in the smack pack, i'll always make a starter with wyeast from now on

9.9% is certainly low for Chinook. I need to make a batch of C3IPA: Columbus, Chinook and Cascade.

I read that one of Wyeast's strains was Rogue's "Pacman" yeast. I wonder if that's it? I've never used it.

As for the Chinooks, just use more. I'm on a SN Celebration Ale kick. Chinooks are good for ya.

Wyeast maintains a line of Pacman for Rogue, but does not sell it. More the pity.

yea, i figured i'd go 1 oz for bittering rather than the 2/3 oz i'd planed. w/ the cascade flavoring, it get's me in the middle 40 IBU range.

that Northwest ale had a good smell to it when i added it to my starter. look'n forward to this one.

this is what wyeast's description is:
1332 Northwest Ale Yeast. One of the classic ale strains from the Northwest U.S. Breweries. Produces a malty and mildly fruity ale with good depth and complexity. Flocculation - high; apparent attenuation 67-71%. (65-75° F, 18-24° C)

i wanted a malty, hoppy red ale, so i figured i go with this one, rather than the chico/cali v yeast. just to try something i'd never used.
