So for folks that have been doing this longer than I have, does anyone have an educated guess as to when can we expect to see the return of Galaxy hops in stores? I'm wanting to brew the Tropical Session White IPA recipe in this months Zymurgy, but it calls for .5 oz of Galaxy at the flameout. I've got all the other ingredients gathered, and I'm wondering if I should wait for Galaxy to get back in stock, or just substitute another variety. Maybe Simcoe?

Thoughts?

Henry

Citra is a pretty close substitute to Galaxy if you don't want to buy them for just 1/2oz in that recipe but it is a great flavor/aroma hop so I'm sure you could find plenty of use for the extra
