I don't have any chinook hops (or any of the listed substitutes in BeerSmith). Do you think I could use a slightly larger amount og northern brewer hops instead for the bittering hops to get the same IBU's w/o affecting the taste by much?

I brew this about half the time with Chinook and half the time with Columbus. Chinook is slightly piney and Columbus is more citrus. Northern Brewer will be closer to Columbus, and it will work very well in this recipe. Plus, adding them at 60 you'll probably barely notice the difference, if any.

Let me know how this turns out for you. I just brewed 10 gallons of it 20 days ago. Looking forward to kegging it in another 10 days. I could rush it, but the long primary seems to help this beer come into its own.

I agree that longer primary time seems to help my beers come into theor own. I have not brewed a cooper beer before so I am anxious to give this one a try as soon as we get enough snow to help me chill the wort.

Thanks for the reply and I will get back to you in 6-8 weeks with a report.

Still curious... did you ever get around to making this? I'm hoping to brew it again soon so it's ready to go for this Fall. It's such a good Autumn beer that my friends are already requesting it.

This turned out very well using the NB hop addition at 60 minutes in place of the chinock. Now I have that I some chinock hops I want to try the original recipe. However, our temps of 95-100 F are not cooperating with brewing this week.

brewed this up yesterday, but messed up my OG. used to doing 1 gallon batches but did a 2 gallon for this one, totally spaced and didnt realize i shouldve expected a longer boil time with more wort- ended up with final of 2.4 gals instead of 2 so OG dropped from expected 1.060 to 1.052. guess it will just be a bit hoppier! so far the smell coming out the jug during fermentation is amazing!
