I have a chocolate stout recipe that I want to brew this week. It calls for Hallertauer hops. Don't have any and LHBS is also out. I do have Saaz, Cascade, Perle & Sorachi. I've not brewed this type of recipe before so not sure what to expect in a substitute. I'm assuming that Sorachi is out due to the heavy citrus tones. Thinking that Saaz or Perle would be fairly neutral substitutes. Any advice?

IMHO Hallertau's a weird hop for a chocolate stout, but the best sub in your list is Saaz, I think.

Are they for bittering? Most stouts don't have late hop additions, so I assume bittering. If so, it isn't a huge deal which but I would stat away from ones that have strong flavors like cascade.

Is this just a bittering addition?

Use this website for hop substitutions:

Liberty would work well.

Thanks for all the feedback. Yes, it is just for bittering, I have no late hops additions for this one. I was tinkering with theh idea of using Perle since it has a slight mint background to it, but I'll just go with Saaz for this go-round.

If just for bittering then just use anything you have. You wont have much flavour coming through anyway. Just match for IBUs and you should be fine.
