I get them at my lhbs - Marks Homebrew.
I have never looked anywhere else.

Maybe someone else can advise a vendor closer to you.

If not, Mark will mail an order to you. The phone number is on the (under construction) website.

No affiliation...really!

Seth :p

Try Grumpys or Goliath or if you get stuck and want to try someone way over in WA the TWOC normally has them as well. I am sure there must be a local store that would have them as they are not that 'rare'.

Thanks muchly peoples.

Would any of you know how aromatic chinooks are?
i.e very aromatic, aromatic, partially aromatic or not at all? I never used em before but have tasted some good beer that has used em.

happy brewing.

I reckon quite aromatic. I much prefer to add them late for aroma than to bitter with them, unless I am looking for a pronounced grapefruit taste.

agreed. My intention was to dry hop with em and bitter with cascade or northern brewer. I just kinda thought I'd ask seeing as though they have a high AA%

From my experience in brewing an Arrogant Bastard clone, I can state that Chinook is quite big on flavour and aroma as well as bitterness. About 100g goes into the AB clone.
