Default Willamette Hops

I'm trying to make an american style pale ale. I got the wrong hops, instead I got williamette hops. Can I still use these in the 60 minute boil, or will it spoil my batch?
Thanks

Welcome to HBT!

Somehow I doubt a differing hop selection will spoil any batch (it will still be beer after all!). If you post the recipe we could tell you how it will differ from the original however.

I usually use Northern brewer hops.

Well, Willamette has lower alpha acids than Northern Brewer, so you will have to use more hops, but thats ok because Willamette is a pretty darn tasty hop IMHO . What is your entire recipe? With that info we may be able to give you some better advice.

+1, the biggest difference will be less bittering for the same amount of hops (which can be accounted for by increasing the amount of the 60 minute addition). The flavour will be different as well but Willamette is a Fuggles variant and is very tasty.

If you are only substituting for the bittering add, there won't be much difference. Just adjust the quantity.
