Default Hops Subs for East Kent Golding

Quick question i have a lot of recipes that use East Kent Golding hops, can i use US Goldings as a substitute? HOPS DIRECT has a great deal on a pound of US GOLDING hops.

Thanks in advance for any advice.

Yes you can use Goldings as a substitute I do it all the time. I have used First Gold hops too and they work really well in place of EKG.

If you have a copy of CLONE BREWS there's a cross reference chart in the back.

I guess i will go with the US Golding according to the Hops reference chart. The recipes i am looking at is Jamis ESB, Robust Porter, Southern English Brown Ale and other recipes in his book.

Fuggles are also a pretty solid sub imho.

IMHO, as long as you stay in the relative "family" (i.e use an English hop as a sub for another English hop)they sub pretty well easily. there are some exceptions tho'.

They did have East Kent Goldings LEAF. I ordered a pound a week ago, and it just shipped. EKG are not showing up on their menu now though. I sure hope I get EK and not US. I'm sure I couldn't tell the difference, but if I had wanted US, I would have paid less for them...

In my most recent beer, I used Styrian instead. Not sure that was a great sub, but it was all my LHBS had.
