it depends on what you want, if a pommy style hop with williamette to 25 to 30 ibu and use the 1084 and if a yankee a combo of centenial and cascade with a bit of amarillo late to 30-40 ibu and the 1272.

Its gonna be dark.

BUT I would, with the hops you have;

Bitter with Chinook.
Then Equal amount of Cascade and Centennial for flavour addition.
Then Equal amount of Cascade and Centennial for araoma addition.

Sort of a Black APA...

Dp IT!

Cheers

Nah, bitter with the CTZ and bang a little Willamette in with the rest of his suggestion - goes well in a seppo brew. Not too much, just enough to add a little complexity without undermining the citrus thing. Maybe a little CTZ late for a touch of that piney thing.

Definitely the 1272 if you end up leaning heavily on the US hops.

Cant say I have used CTZ so would have to say;

Do what I said.

1272 is way rad.

So, as a bittering hop?
brilliant. very clean, jimboley uses it also. i love it. my IIPA is bittered with it and has hop additions at 20,10 and 0. It has a fruity aroma to it and i'm try to get the latest season from him too. just the kids and bills means no brewing for a while..

Here is the recipe

Original Gravity (OG): 1.078 (P): 18.9
Final Gravity (FG): 1.020 (P): 5.1
Alcohol (ABV): 7.66 %
Colour (SRM): 14.0 (EBC): 27.6
Bitterness (IBU): 108.4 (Average)

90.98% Pale Ale Malt
3.01% Carapils (Dextrine)
3.01% Chocolate, Pale
3.01% Vienna

2.7 g/L Columbus (12.6% Alpha) @ 60 Minutes (Boil)
1.3 g/L Columbus (12.6% Alpha) @ 20 Minutes (Boil)
1.3 g/L Columbus (12.6% Alpha) @ 10 Minutes (Boil)
1.3 g/L Columbus (12.6% Alpha) @ 0 Minutes (Aroma)

0.1 g/L Whirlfloc Tablet @ 10 Minutes (Boil)

Single step Infusion at 66C for 60 Minutes. Boil for 60 Minutes

Fermented at 18C with Safale US-05


Sorry fro the off topic.

But yes CTZ is a good bittering hop

Looks like the start of a "Robust Porter" to me.

I'd go light on the hops and let the malt character shine through Al, should be ready for the June competition.

Also love a CDA/black IPA and reckon that malt profile.

CTZ bittering
Lots of cascade, Amarillo at the end. American yeast and if your feeling frisky, dry hop with Nelson.

Going down that road, I'd add some black patent malt and williamette or EKG hops added for more flavor than aroma
