The HBS didnt have any target hops, so I bought bullion hops to substitute it in this stout recipe. Did i make a good choice?

I dont know much about hops and which flavors/charteristics each one has, I went off a chart they had hanging and it said bullion was used in stouts.


Grain Bill:
8lbs dark malt extract
1 lb clover honey
16 oz 60L crystal
6 oz roasted barley
4 oz black patent
3 oz chocolate malt
3 oz special B
Hop Bill:
1 oz Chinnok (14% AA)60 minutes
1 oz Target (8.0 AA) 40 minutes
1 oz Fuggles (5% AA) 20 minutes
1 oz Fuggles (5% AA)at end of boil
* AA is aproximation.

Bullion is a classic Stout hop, many classify the flavor as 'Black Currant like'. I tried to get it but couldn't so went with Northern Brewer. It is a great choice. I think this hop may be being usurped by better storing varieties and it is getting hard to come by. LD-Carlson (a major supplier for NE HBS's) no longer can get it.

Yeah, I almost went with the NB, but then I saw that one on the chart which sounded like what I needed.
