Hi everyone; I bottled my second batch yesterday; an oatmeal stout. Unfortunately, it tastes pretty much the same as the pale ale I made (at least when they were both flat). Now I am going to make another stout (of the non-oatmeal variety) and I just took a look at the hops I have.
I have a bit of my Northern Brewer left, and I have a new package of Mt. Hood to use. The recipe I have calls for some bittering hops (Northern Brewer and Cascade.. but I can use Hood in place of Cascade I suppose) but I will be out of Northern Brewer by the time I am supposed to add the flavoring hops, and I don't know if Mt. Hood can be used.
My plan is:
1/3 c of roasted barley, 7 lbs Dark DME, 10 oz brown sugar, and then use Hood and Brewer as bittering hops, and (maybe) the rest of the Hood as the flavoring hops.
Basically my question is: can I use Mt Hood as a flavoring hop?
