I'm planning a DIPA following Vinnie's Pliny the Elder recipe (https://www.homebrewersassociation.org/attachments/0000/6351/doubleIPA.pdf
), but I have different hops I'd like to use...big stash from NikoBrew!
Substitutions planned: Apollo for Columbus, Cascade for Centennial, and Mosaic for Simcoe.
Here are Vinnie's kettle additions for a 6 gal batch...
3.50 oz (99 g) Columbus* 13.90% A.A. 90 min. (sub Apollo - 18% AA)
0.75 oz (21 g) Columbus* 13.90% A.A. 45 min. (sub Apollo - 18% AA)
1.00 oz (28 g) Simcoe 12.30% A.A. 30 min. (sub Mosaic - 12% AA)
1.00 oz (28 g) Centennial 8.00% A.A. 0 min. (sub Cascade - 5.5% AA)
2.50 oz (71 g) Simcoe 12.30% A.A. 0 min. (sub Mosaic - 12% AA)
AA % are fairly similar, with the exception of the Apollo. Should I sub the hops straight across (with an obviously smaller Apollo addition)? Or should I change the balance? I've never brewed with Mosaic before, so I'm not sure what to expect there.
Planning to follow the same plan for dry hopping too. Vinnie calls for equal amounts of each hop in a double dry hop.
