Hey hey, looking for some inspiration. Got 60gms of Chinook as a bonus with a brew supplies order a while back, looking for some advice on a kits + bits that would use them well.

Thinking of keeping it to around 5%, wondering which of the kits would compliment the flavour?

Pale ale would suit them. Maybe the Bootmaker one; use 30g Chinook as a hop tea and dry hop the other 30g, should turn out pretty tasty.

Thanks Otto, I had a hunch that might be a good solution - I've made a bunch of beers with the APA and finishing hops, all of them have been fine, but I felt like for a hop tea the APA might lack body on its own. Woollies is doing a clearance sale so I should be able to pick up a Bootmaker there.

Was just looking at that recipe and thinking dagnabbit I'll need to go buy a bigger pot. Been thinking of giving some extract recipes a try, if I can find a way to stop complaints about hop boiling smell. Thinking earplugs or some form of bribery ;)
