I'm brewing an IPA from a true brew kit. The kits says it has cascade and chinook hop pellets. What I have in the kit is actually UK first gold and uk pilgrim. What should I do?

Use them....a lot of kits are substituting hops because of the shortage. And the big "C" hops like cascade and chinook are the hardest to find....

They wouldn't substitute something that wouldn't work....They know what they're doing.

I know to use them, I don't know when to apply them. The instructions still have the old hops.

I looked up the hops....it appears the the pilgrim is your bittering hop and the First gold is your finishing hop....so use the pilgrim @ 60 and the first gold just before flameout.

You're welcome.....I looked at the true brew instructions online...pretty crappy...

Usually the aau's are on a label on the hop packs.
