Hi.

I have a recipe that uses Magnum as a Bitterling Hop would I be OK to replace them with Challenger?


Thanks. Aamcle

Challenger is a good all round hop, though arguably not quite as 'clean' bittering as Magnum. Northern Brewer and Columbus are my other top two bittering hops, alongside Magnum, if you can get any. If it's a British ale, I'd certainly just use the challenger.
