I like your hop choices.  I would use a neutral hop like magnum or warrior for your main bittering charge.  Amarillo, citra, and simcoe are to valuable to waste as a bittering charge. 
I was kind of thinking along those same lines. I want to use hops I have on hand and was considering Summit for the bittering hop.  I haven't used Summit so was kind of waffling back towards Simcoe.

I plan to brew an Imperial IPA tomorrow. Here's a link to the recipe.

http://beersmithrecipes.com/viewrecipe/11363/imperial-ipa

I want to use Citra, Amarillo & Simcoe in the brew. However, I've never used Citra or Simcoe, so I don't know how much or when to add them. I just took a guess when I created my recipe. Does anyone think I need to change my hops schedule? I could substitute with Cascade, if you think that would work better. The last thing I want is a beer that tastes like cat piss! LOL!

Also, what should I dry hop with?

Your opinions will be appreciated!   :)

I'm making an 'express IPA' Sunday with the same combination. I haven't finalized the hop bill yet but I'm leaning towards bittering primarily with the Simcoe, late additions of Amarillo and Cirtra and dry hopping with equal amounts of each.

My girlfriend used the extract that came in the Rogue Hazelnut Brown Nectar kit. I'm assuming it was BrewCraft. I think she only used about half of the 2oz. bottle. It came out really nice.

It's also a typical pattern as the plant matures, most of the energy and nutrients are being pushed out to the tips where vegetative growth is active and flowers are beginning to develop. If it's more systemic yellowing I would worry about a nitrogen/fertilizer deficiency.

Wood/Casks / Re: Strong Vanilla Notes
« on: June 07, 2012, 07:45:03 AM »
I've over-done it with Vanilla. It was a beer intended for Christmas gifts, so I not only had to dump a batch, but I had to buy a lot of damn gifts.

I "dry-beaned" with only one pod for ~ 4 days and it was too much. Gotta be careful with that stuff. Start with 1/4 of a bean and work your way up - just let it sit and taste fairly often.
Interesting, I recently made a BVIP and 'dry beaned' two five gallon portions.  For each I placed two sliced and "gunked" beans into ~60ml of absolut and let them sit for a week. This "tincture" was added to a secondary for two weeks prior to kegging. In this case I don't find the vanilla overpowering at all in fact somewhat subtle. There is a lot going on in a BVIP, I imagine the 375 ml of bourbon may tame the vanilla some.
