I think bitter is a better flavor for Belgians, but others may disagree.

I could have sworn I already posted a second question to this but I guess I will try to post it again. The hop bill for this calls for a halltertau 6.5%AA. I can only get Mittle...at 3.2%AA. Do I need to double the dose of hops to 2.5oz or is this not how AA% works. Sorry for the noob type question but I kinda am and this beer is for graduation next march so I want it to be as perfect as possible. Thanks in advance.

Thanks, I was thinking the same from everything I read but I needed another person since I am so new to this.

Someone out there has to have some input on the hops for this recipe. Anything would help at this point.
