chinook and mosaic
« on: June 28, 2013, 09:56:31 PM »
I recently made a 10 gallon IPA with 8oz centennial in the boil and 4oz mosaic dry hopped, it was great.  I was unable to get centennial (through the mosaic supplier) again so I am subbing for Chinook, anyone tried this?  One form or another this IPA will be my house brew.

Sounds great to me.  Chinook is an underrated finishing hop.  It has an intense piney character, which would balance some of the fruitiness of Mosaic. I would use slightly less Chinook than the amount of Centennial you'd have used. I think you'll like it.
