Looks good to me. Should be quite tasty. It appears you're as much a hop fiend as I am. I've never used that much maltodextrine but I have seen others so it should be fine.

Be sure to get back to us with tasting results.

Chinook hops are of medium intensity, spicy, piney, distinctive grapefruit.
Use caution when adding to early boil, as grapefruit can dominate.

So long as you like that flavour, you should be fine.

Love that flavor. I am going to age this a bit. I hear it helps to fully clear and condition the Sorghum. Hop flavor will fade.
