    Hey everyone,

    Has anyone mixed Ella and Galaxy hops before?

    I have popped a Pacific Ale into the fermenter and I need to dry hop 75g of galaxy in a few days.

    The problem is I only have 50g left of Galaxy and I have loads of Ella pellets that I was thinking about using for the other 25g?

    Cheers in advance for the help!

    I have not mixed them, but Ella hops are closely related to Galaxy. Both have distinct citrus/tropical fruit aroma. I suspect it will make a decent substitute.

    Nothing ventured nothing gained hey?

    Who know it might be a great hop combo.

    Maybe that's a great thread
