During the one meeting I went to for CARBOY (local brewing club) they were planning to do this very thing. A number of people were going to brew up a simple pale ale (same recipe) and they were all going to select one type of hops to use for their batch. Calculations were to be used to ensure that each batch had approximately the same IBUs.

I never went back to CARBOY, but if you are a member of a local brew club, maybe you can suggest a similar idea at your next meeting.

I realize Chinook is primarily a bittering hop but I was wondering if anyone has used them to dry hop?

I find Chinook pretty harsh. Might be OK for dry hopping.

The BEST dry hops to use are Centennial and Amarillo. You can't go wrong

Thanks again

Yeah I have dryhopped with the pellets before in a huge IPA recipe I occasionally do. It usually has an ounce of Cascade and half to a full ounce of Centennial, but when I did not have that I used a half ounce of Chinook, which was my original bittering hop. Gave it a nice spicey bite and smelled like a citrousy christmas tree. oodles of malt sweetened out the bite. I thought it was great, but I love chinook hops. not for everyone for sure, but in small doses it is fine.

I really like the taste of Chinnook, love the bite... But I don't want it to overpower the others...
