Default Split hop Experiment.

4oz chinook
2 oz armillo
4oz citra
2oz hbc 342

Should I use the chinook or hbc 342 for bittering hop?

Hop schedule be 2oz armillo vs 2oz citra in 2.5 gallons. Thoughts?

I wouldn't use either of those for bittering if you really want to compare the Amarillo and Citra. If you had to use either one, I'd probably go with the 342. Reason being I don't particularly like the hop, but I pick up soap flavors from chinook heavy beer, so take my suggestions with a grain of salt.

I want to make two IPAs. I heard chinook is harsh. Not sure what is this "harsh" is. So I can buy a 6 pack.

I'm 99% certain that New Belgium's Ranger IPA is bittered with Chinook and I can barely drink it. If you want an idea of what Chinook bittering is like, pick up some of that.

I despise HBC 342. It changes character too much, far too quickly for it to be of any use to me.
