Yeah, citra is a good sub for Simcoe. You still get that great grapefruit, citrus flavor (hence the name I suppose). Either way, this is what I used for a substitute, and the beer turned out amazing. If anything else, it's a proven choice to make a solid beer if you can't get the simcoes.

Well, you added sugar to it! That's why it was so high.

Sometimes carmelization reactions from the boil can cause the sugars to become unfermentable (by beer yeast, anyways), so you can get high gravity because of that. This is especially the case if you do a full length boil with extract. Some recipes (ahem, barleywine!) take advantage of that to get a rich, caramel sweetness in the beer, whereas in others (ahem, pilsners!) it contrasts too much with the style.

If I can't get Simcoe, I'll use either Citra (first choice), Amarillo (second choice) or - if I'm desperate - Cascade. I haven't tried Sorachi Ace yet, but I hear it has a citrusy aroma as well, so if you blended it in with the others it might be... interesting.

Anyone use Amarillo pellets instead of whole hops? What difference should I expect?

Hey there Justibone old buddy...do you have any links that discuss hops and what is a good sub for what? I really need to get a better understanding of different hops.

Brew on!!
Hey CU...When you are doing this AG are you using your recipe, 60/40...5 lbs wheat, 3.5 lbs 2 row, 1 lb caravienne, or are you using what someone else on here came up with after some advice from the brewery...8lbs 2-row, 3lbs red wheat,1lb caravienne?

As you know my first PM was your recipe, and now I'm planning it for AG and was wondering which you think might get you closer to what your "inspired" clone was?

Google is your friend.

Brew Your Own: The How-To Homebrew Beer Magazine - Comparing and Selecting Hops

Hop Guide - BeerAdvocate

List of hop varieties - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The best guide to hop aromas, though, is your nose. If you can smell them, you will know what aroma they will impart to your beer... with the possible exception of spicy. I can never smell "spicy", but others say that they can.
