I'm making a Two Hearted Ale clone-ish and have Amarillo AND Centennial hops available.

Any of you guys have a preference on which one to use. Both?

The hop sched for a 5 gallon batch calls for

1.5oz Amarillo 60min
1.0oz Amarillo 15min
0.5oz Amarillo 5min
0.5oz Amarillo Dry Hop

But I have a BUNCH of Centennial on hand (both actually).

If it calls for Amarillo, I'd say use Amarillo. Especially if you have a bunch of both available. Save the Centennial something else, like Beirmmuncher's blonde. Althought if your bent on using some Cent, I'd say use it for bittering, and keep the aroma and flavor to Amarillo.

Not bent - I just know that before the hop problem Centennial was the hop used. I have no knowledge of Amarello (or Centennial for that matter).

now both are in abundance.

THIS.

While not in Two Hearted, Amarillo and Simcoe together are just fantastic.

Look at Yoop's DFH 60 clone. Warrior for bittering, then continously hopped with Amarillo & Simcoe, dry-hopped with Amarillo & Simcoe. Delicious.

I'm also making a Bell's clone today, and I've doing all bittering and aroma with Cent and then using Cascade for dry hopping. Probably won't turn out exact, but hey, it'll be damn good.

Well - abundance means I can actually BUY them. I have to see if my LHBS carry's Simcoe. Probably not. They are a good store and just branching into home brew. I try to get as much as I can there but . . . . . it's sparce for a lot of things.

How would you use Simcoe in the below

1.5oz Amarillo 60min
1.0oz Amarillo 15min
0.5oz Amarillo 5min
0.5oz Amarillo Dry Hop
