I am going to take a shot at an Old Rasputin Imperial Stout recipe this weekend.
I don't have any of the hops needed so I am going to sub:
Magnum (in place of Cluster)
Amarillo (in place of Centennial)
but what about the Northern Brewer hops? I have read so many different conflicting things---I have Fuggles, EKG, Willamette, Chinook, Columbus, Simcoe, Horizon, and Warrior.
What would you use for a flavor addition in place of Northern Brewer (id say 10 min or less) for a RIS?
I am leaning toward Chinook (because I have subbed this one before in a Stout and it turned out great) or possibly Willamette. Some of the guys at the BN say to use Simcoe in place of NB.....
Anyone care to chime in?
