Still new to recipe creation, just looking for some feedback. Didn't have any direction on the hop additions. Just used Simcoe and Amarrillo because I don't have much experiance with them. Any feedback would be appreciated.

Personally, I would keep the BUs about the same but use much less hops in the bittering addition and move A LOT more hops to the flavor, and especially, the aroma. I'd also use more dry hops. This beer isn't about bitterness, per se, but about hop flavor and aroma. You will be using more hops.

Also, 45 days aging a IIPA kind of goes against the grain since these things should be consumed fairly fresh. I'd use chips instead of cubes, that way 1-2 weeks aging will be plenty and you can drink the beer the way it was intended to be consumed - young and fresh.

jmac:
Looks like a tasty recipe!! I would suggest making a yeast starter or using multiple yeast packs, that way your beer will ferment out completely.

I am also with the major on using oak chips, instead of cubes....

Cheers, happy brewing

smithy222:
Great info so far. Thanks. Guess I should have mentioned I will do a starter. Will step it up once or twice before brewing. I will revamp the hop additions and swich to oak chips and a shorter secondary. Will repost the recipe once I have a chance to work on it. Thanks again. Any other thoughts would be appreciated.

smithy222:
 Revamped the hop additions and changed oak cubes to chips with a shorter secondary. Any thoughts on the grain bill?
