After having this sit in the bottles for just over a week, I found a flaw with this recipe: The beer seems to magically disappear. I just started drinking it a few days ago and a quarter of the batch is gone.

Fantastic recipe. Everyone who's tried it can't believe it's home made. This will definitely be a regular on the brew circuit. I think I need better equipment so I can brew larger batches...

Brewing this one now. In Mash Tun. Only change I am doing is subbing last amarillo addition with Glacier. Also going to split into two batches and pitch one with northern ale (1332) and the other with american ale (1056). Might also dry hop with glacier for 3 days.

Hey...
Hope to try this recepie... my second time brewing
But the problem is in my home country we don't have available all the hops recepie calls for... so was wondering if I use some other hops will I get at least something that is close?

I would use instead
Centennial (9.2%) - Columbus (12,7 %)
Amarillo (8.2%) - Cascade (6,7 %)
Citra (11%) - Citra (13,5%)

This is what I have available in online shop... also there are some others you can check:

Advice?

Use cascade in place of the centennial (adjust for AA% differences). The citra AA% doesn't matter because it's dry hop only. Replacing Amarillo is difficult; you could use cascade, but will significantly change the beer (it will still be good though). IME, if you use Columbus, it will overpower all the other hops (with a really nice piney dankness that I enjoy).

Edit: Just had a look at your link. You could use Mosaic instead of Amarillo. They are quite different, but both give nice fruity flavours so it is in the same 'style'.

It's quite easy to work out with brewing software. I can plug it into beersmith for you if you don't have it. I'd need to know roughly your pre-boil and post-boil volumes, which hops you plan to use, and the AA% for each hop.

The hops are all late boil (in the last 20 mins) so I wouldn't worry too much about subtle AA% differences, especially with the 10 and 0 minute ones. If the AA%'s are double or half then you may want to adjust the 20 min one.

Good luck!

P.S. A lower ABV 'sessionable' version of this beer is available too - see here. This is the one I keep on tap all the time now. At only 4.3% ABV it's more approachable and doesn't give anything up in terms of flavour.

P.P.S. Agreed with Gnomebrewer on the hop substitutions. While I love Columbus, it's a bit out of place here and will overpower. If you want to use it, I'd recommend my Green Flash West Coast IPA clone instead.
