I'm brewing an imperial pale ale the grains are in the pic and the hops are all Columbus. Would it be wise to mix one ounce Columbus hops with half an ounce of cascade?

That's like asking if it's okay to mix salt and pepper

You're clearly doing it wrong. You should be mixing two ounces of Columbus with three ounces of Cascade.

Sure! Try it. One of the big hops distributors hopunion sells several hops blends.

Your kettle will blow up in a giant mushroom cloud and a crevasse will open beneath your feet and suck you down into the depths of reinheitsgebot never to be seen again.





































No really you'll be just fine and we do it all the time

can't really see the recipe and don't know what hops they consider bittering/flavoring/aroma and what you might be adding subtracting... you may alter the balance for the recipe they have created, but now its yours. My advice is write down what you just in case its good (high probability)

Better yet, throw in some Centennial in there too. Columbus/Centennial/Cascade is one of my favorite combinations.
