I am brewing Denny Conn's Rye Ipa recipe this weekend. I got the Columbus Hops it calls for, but I could only get 2 ounces of Mt. Hood (recipe calls for 3 ounces). I substituted Crystal for the third ounce of Mt. Hood. My question is: Where is the best place to use the Crystal in the hop schedule? Per the recipe, the Mt. Hood additions are: 1 oz. FWH, 1/2 oz. at 30 min. and 1.5 oz. at flameout.

I know that there is no right answer here, but I appreciate your thoughts.

I think that Mt. Hood and Crystal are probably close enough to leave the hop schedule as is.
On the other hand I have a rye recipe that uses Perle and Amarillo hops that is yummyyyyy.

You could always blend the two different hops together and add them that way. As Steve infers, Mt. Hood and Crystal are both triploid varieties of Hallertau and have relatively similar properties.
