Default Hop Substitution

I am going to make the House of Paine American Pale Ale that was in the last issue of BYO. When I went to my LHBS, they had everything but the simcoe hops. So I just got some extra cascade hops to substitute.

I feel that I may be settling by not having the simcoe. My only other option right now is to use the .5 oz of summit hops I have left over from an IPA. Here's the original recipe.

% Amount Name Origin Potential SRM
65.0 3.25 lbs. Pale Malt(2-row) America 1.036 2
15.0 0.75 lbs. Crystal 40L America 1.034 40
10.0 0.50 lbs. Briess DME- Amber America 1.046 13
10.0 0.50 lbs. Briess LME- Amber America 1.035 9

Potential represented as SG per pound per gallon.

Amount Name Form Alpha IBU Boil Time
0.60 oz. Simcoe Pellet 13.00 38.4 60 min
0.50 oz. Cascade Pellet 5.75 4.8 20 min
0.50 oz. Cascade Pellet 5.75 3.8 15 min
0.50 oz. Cascade Pellet 5.75 2.8 10 min
0.50 oz. Amarillo Gold Pellet 10.00 4.1 5 min
0.25 oz. Amarillo Gold Pellet 10.00 0.0 0 min

What do you think?

I'd use the Summit. Bittering hops don't add much flavor or aroma, but the AA% is important.
Remember one unassailable statistic, as explained by the late, great George Carlin: "Just think of how stupid the average person is, and then realize half of them are even stupider!"
