Could anyone recommend some sites that say what hops are best to use with specific types of lager, beers or ales?

Are there any sites like this?

Thanks for any replies/suggestions.

I like using the book "Designing Great Beers" by Ray Daniels.
Amazon.com: Designing Great Beers: The Ultimate Guide to Brewing Classic Beer Styles: Ray Daniels: Books

It also covers more than just hops (yeast, grain, adjunct, water, mash temps, fermentation temps, mash thickness). Pretty much anything you would need to design a great beer. Oh! That's where he gets the name

Right another question, sorry

Thanks for the links guys, i've checked them and it looks like my glacier and williamette hops will go with the coopers australian pale ale i'm going to brew today.

What i'm going to do is just boil, say a litre of water, toss the hops in then take it off the boil and leave it for 10 mins and strain into the fermenting bin before carrying on per instructions.

What i'm wondering is how much of each of the hops would be good?

15g of each? 50/50 ratio?

Thaks for any replies.
