I am looking at doing a dark IPA but have no hops listed in this recipe. Still consider myself a newbie to brewing so dont have a lot of exp with matching hops.

I have amarillo, cascasde, citra, mosiac anf galaxy.

I am just wondering which would suit the brew best or do I need to find a hops with higher alpha %

How would this go.

Replace the Columbus with Galaxy
Replace the Nugget with Cascade

But also add a 30 min hop of 1oz of Galaxy and Cascade

and add 1oz of Mosaic at 15min and flameout?

Cheers Yob,
I found a similar chart but unfortunately I don't have the recommended substitutes.

That is why I posted on here to see if anyone had a suggestion or to see if the ones I posted would work.

Would Mosiac, Cascade and Galaxy work together?

Hey Neanderthal,

I like the looks of your recipe. I've never heard of midnight wheat, though. I'm guessing it's a dark or roasted wheat?
