Hop Substitution Chart

Every brewer gets into a situation where he or she would like to make a particular style or recipe but a hop is not available that is needed for whatever reason. Below is not a catch all, but as time goes I will add more and more hop varieties to this page. This should be a decent start, but with the dozens and dozens of hop varieties on the market with new ones being added, this will always be a work in progress.
