I love me some williamette in an amber, never get a minty taste, gentle earthy spicyness for me. Infact I am bringing up to boil an amber bittered with centennial with late willamette. Your recipe looks tasty to me. Personally the first time using a hop i like to do a single hop beer just so i can test out its characteristics though.

Thanks for the reassurance.
I think I will do a porter with the willamette as the only hop next as I think this may suite it a bit better.

Actually looking at the amounts you are adding, I think you will find the centennial will overpower it, add atleast equal amounts, but probably higher amounts of willamette if you want it to come through at all.

Went with equal ammounts for later additions, will go with a just willamette in a porter later to get a better feel for it I think. Thanks for the advice
