So I'm finally getting around to brewing this bad boy this weekend (tomorrow I hope!) and had a few questions on my subs.
As I said above I have no Chinook but I have Zythos and Citra. I am thinking of subbing the Citra for the Chinook as Mtitus did above, except for the first addition. I have heard that Citra can be a little "catty" when used as a first bittering hop for that long so I was thinking of the Zythos blend for the 90min bittering sub. Should be good I think.
Any problems seen subbing a little less C60, say 1#, for the C40? I don't have any C40 but have quite a bit of C60 and C120 for other recipes coming down the line. Still on the fence about adding a bit of Melanoidin malt since I have this on hand too.
Lastly, I know that US-05 is clean and tried and true in this recipe, but I have some yeasts that I havent used before just sitting and waiting for me. What do you think of: Wyeast 1272 Am. Ale or Wyeast 1450 Denny Conn. as a sub? I'll probably just end up using US-05 for the clean and bright flavor that I get with that, but I would be interested to see what the malt-forward 1450 may do to the beer. 1272 is described as, "ferment cool for a clean, light citrus character", which sounds right up the alley of the 'Fresh Squeezed IPA'!!
Sorry for the long post, just drank some espresso and very amped to get this brew bubblin away. Thanks all!!
