If you want a break down of the varieties you have, I suggest using google or the search bar at the top left of your page.

Chinook and Williamette will make beer, but completely different from this beer. Personally I leave Chinook for pales and ipa's (dank grapefruit, very bitter). Williamette to me is spicy, fruity and a little woody. Cascade is fruity (light grapefruit) and floral, and Centennial is a stronger, more powerful version of Cascade.

Since this is a blonde ale, I would leave out the Chinook for sure. And if that's all you have I suggest ordering two 4 oz packages of Cascade and Centennial from Farmhouse supply. Good product at a good price and with fast shipping.

Hope this helps!

I would suggest make the recipes as stated the first time and then toy with differ ingredients.

I get that changing hops would make different beer, the questions really was would it make this quick turn around beer taste good and if so what flavours would I get out of it. Admittedly I did not spend hours trawling google but if all we needed was google then this site would be redundant.

OK you have convinced me to stay away from the hops I already have. Thanks.

You could always try it and tell us how it turns out. Or you could use williamette solely. I think the chinook won't be good in a blonde.

Results Update:

I took Sloose's advise and dry hopped an additional 1 oz of Cascade for 14 days. But like a lazy slob I didn't bag it or strain it when I racked it to the keg.......................................... so it's kinda ........................... gritty!

My son commented he likes to drink beer, not chew it.

The dry hops give it an extra complexity. The same taste, just a little extra. I'm now sold on straining the hops. I still won't bag them, but I will strain them.

I love this hobby!

I made this again Sunday, I'm always changing things around and was wondering this time. I put some yeast nutrient in with it this time and Monday it was bursting from the seems and when I got home yesterday to check it, it looks like its pretty much finished fermenting?

I might try it.... I have been brewing a lot of clones lately and I like the way this looks.

That and I have all the ingredients already…
