OK, from what I've heard, Centennial is in short supply this year. Several sites are already out, and a few that have some on hand have prices at almost twice what the normal price is. I was thinking that since this beer makes for a great "house session" beer for the warmer months (in LA, that means March thru November) I'd like to buy some hops in larger amounts to have on hand. I was looking at a possible substitute for the Centennial, and I am kinda eyeing Amarillo. Any experiences with this one? Any opinions on it?

Amarillo is known for it's grapefruit/citrus notes. A lot of people like it for APA/IPA's. Might be too sour/fruity for this beer.

I actually ended up using Challenger for bittering and Cascade for aroma/flavor. I think it's a touch hoppy for me. I'd go with something neutral and refreshing.

Amarillo seems like a poor sub more because it's way harder to get in quantity these days than centennial. Centennial is becoming scarcer, but amarillo has been all but gone for months, and what little is out there is insanely expensive.

I did an Amarillo Blonde using BM's recipe and it came out well. Used Notty for the yeast. Also, blending 70% Cascades and 30% Columbus is a time-honored method of subbing for Centennial hops.

I've never heard of that. Now I know what I'll do with all that Cascade. For some reason I'm not a huge fan of Cascade but I LOVE Centennial.

Brewed yesterday. Hit 1.040 -- I am getting better about hitting the efficiency I need. Smelled and tasted awesome. Used washed W1056. 12 hours later it just took off. Wondering if I should hook up the blew off tube. Can't wait to have that first glass of it in a few weeks. Thank you BierMuncher!

OK I have made this a couple times now, and I like to play with this brew ALOT, this time I made it with citra and honey. This should be good.
