Title: Favorite APA/IPA Hop Schedule
Post by: bluesman on February 09, 2010, 08:30:02 PM
What's your favorite house, clone, east coast, west coast, midwest, anywhere  American APA and/or IPA hop schedule.

Assume a volume of 5 gallons.

I'll add one I want to try. This is the infamous Pliny the Elder hop bill.

HOP BILL
3.50 oz CTZ 13.90% A.A. 90 min.
.75 oz CTZ 13.90% A.A. 45 min.
1.00 oz Simcoe 12.30% A.A. 30 min.
1.00 oz Centennial 8.00% A.A. 0 min.
2.50 oz Simcoe 12.30% A.A. 0 min.
1.00 oz CTZ 13.90% A.A. Dry Hop (12 to 14 Days Total)
1.00 oz Centennial 9.10% A.A. Dry Hop (12 to 14 Days Total)
1.00 oz Simcoe 12.30% A.A. Dry Hop (12 to 14 Days Total)
.25 oz CTZ 13.90% A.A. Dry Hop (5 days to go in dry hop)
.25 oz Centennial 9.10% A.A. Dry Hop (5 days to go in dry hop)
.25 oz Simcoe 12.30% A.A. Dry Hop (5 days to go in dry hop)
(adjust your hop addition quantities accordingly with your exact alpha acid‛s)

Personally I really like Centennial/Cascade combos. I use this combo often in my IPA's.  8)

One hopping schedule I've found I really like is FWH of an ounce of Columbus at 60-90minutes, then at 10 minutes left add 1.25oz to 1.5oz of Cascade/Centennial, and the same at 5 minutes left.  Kind of a hop bursting thing.  

EDIT: What is CTZ?

It's Columbus/Tomahawk/Zeus as they're all the same hop strain.

Hopburst with a 4:2:1 blend of Amarillo, Simcoe, and Centennial, then a big Amarillo dry hop.

I have two. For my IPA I like 1 oz of Columbus at 60, 15, 1 and dry hop.

For APA I like 1 oz Centennial at 60 and 15 and I use 1/2 oz Cascade and 1/2 oz Amarillo at 1 and dry hop.
