Amarillo IPA

(1/7) > >>

fmader:
I have almost 3 pounds of Amarillo hops, and I haven't made or drank an all Amarillo beer before. So, I'm going to do one. What do you think about this hop schedule?

60 minute = 1 oz Amarillo
30 minute = 1 oz Amarillo
15 minute = 1 oz Amarillo
0 minute = 3 oz Amarillo
Dry hop = 3 oz Amarillo

This is for a 5 gallon batch. I've calculated about 85 IBUs.....Too much? Add some more? Or just go with it?

Thanks!

I hope you like grapefruit!

I don't know what OG you're shooting for.  I like ~ a 1:1 BU/GU ratio for my IPAs.  If it seems a little high, you could move the 30 min addition to 10 min to drop it a bit.  Otherwise looks good to me.

cheshirecat:
+1 I think you are a little high on the IBU's. Could back off a little bit. Another thought is even though doing a Amarillo IPA, I would still go with a clean bitting hop like Magnum at 60. Amarillo is still pretty expensive so...

Good luck, let us know how it turns out!

I'd move the 15 min. addition to FWH.
