I was planning on brewing this beer Sunday as a celebration for myself (father’s day) and had a few questions either for Denny or for anyone that’s ever brewed it.
(1) I don’t currently have any Mt. Hood hops. I was planning on subbing some German Hallertau (4.5% AA) and making up the difference with Mt. Hood’s 6% AA. Do you think this will be an equaitable change?
(2) I also don’t have any of Denny’s yeast on hand and was planning on using either US-O5 or Notty (boring I know). Thoughts?
I’ve read that to really give the recipe its due, one should brew it according to the original recipe. Am I better off brewing something else, or making the two small subs that I’ve suggested.
Thanks in advance.
