looks good to me but I am still a little stumped on how to covert the hop %'s to actual weight?

So is it good? Would you recommend the recipe? Looks like yours may be a little young too. Maybe it will improve with a little more age. Let me know. I LOVE headhunter so would love to brew this up if it is good. Thanks.

I know this is an old thread but was looking on brewing IPA bracket, they have changed the hops to simcoe, columbus, citra mosaic and hbc 366

I brew the recipe referenced earlier in the thread on a semi regular basis, in fact I have a batch waiting to be dryhopped sometime next week.

I picked up a 4 pack of HH a couple of months ago and the taste was definetly not the same. The hop flavor was stronger and I felt the bitterness was higher. I dont use mosiac or hbc and cant comment on them, but I think there is more late addition Columbus than in the clone recipe.

This recipe will give you a damn good beer, just not a good clone.
