Default Hop Sub??

I was planning to brew my marzen this weekend, but I have just discovered that I have no German hops suitable in my stash. Usually I use Hallertau or Tetts or Spalter. I have none of those . Closest I have is Willemette. Would you substitute? Or order the German hops and brew next weekend???

Thanks

Alan

Seeing that Marzen do not normally have aroma or flavor hops... Just use the Willamette as a bittering hops.

No Mt. Hood? I usually sub Mt. Hood for Hallertau. In this case, I'd say you could use just about anything for the bittering in a Marzen, no hop aroma or flavor should be there anyways as MC says.
