Hopping schedule
« on: January 27, 2012, 05:18:06 PM »
Brewing an APA tomorrow, and I'd like it to have a big hop flavor and aroma, while keeping the IBUs somewhat close to the style guidelines. I have the following in the fridge:

3oz Amarillo pellets
2oz Amarillo whole
1 oz Citra whole
2oz Willamette pellets

Any ideas?

depending on your AA% of these, throw in 1oz amarillo at 60m. Then at 10m throw in 1oz citra and 2oz of amarillo. save the willamette for another brew.

Or you could go with a totally late hopped beer.
1 oz Amarillo at 30
1/2 to 1 oz Amarillo and 1/2 oz Citra at 10
1/2 to 1 oz Amarillo and 1/2 oz Citra at flameout
Dry hop with an ounce of the Amarillo whole.

I didn't run this through any program, just guessing so you may want to run it through some sort of brewing program.
I just brewed one almost exactly like this but with Centennial instead of Amarillo.  Should have a lot of hops up front and not be overly bitter.

I'd FWH with some of the Amarillo.
