Seeking recipe for dry hopping Cascade and Centennial hops
« on: July 19, 2017, 05:08:02 PM »
I'm expecting my hop bines to produce this year.  Enough to do a 5 gal batch.  Seeking a good recipe (extract) that will allow me to dry hop with cascade and centennial.

Any that come to mind?  Even if it is an existing kit that I can dry hop.

Thanks!

Tony

What do you like to drink? That's a versatile combination of hops. You could use it almost anywhere in American styles.

Look at Northern Brewer's Dead Ringer.  All Centennial hops in the recipe.  American Amber Ale is all Cascade hops.

Recipe available on web site.

I like IPAs.  Really, I like anything, but I figure if I'm playing with hops, might as well get hoppy.  :-)

I've not tried either of those yet.  I currently have the Pliny the elder clone kit from them.  I'm not going to alter that one though.

I'd think extract wheat dme/lme a little caramunich to steep would be great balance to cascade centennial.

40-50ibus at 60m
Then steep 4oz combo/5gal for 15-20m
Dry hop with another 2-3oz
American wheat yeast or 051

And you're good to go.

Why not a big fresh hop dose?

Something super simple that will really put your hops at the forefront might be like this for a 5gal batch.

8# Pale LME
1# Amber LME
1oz Centennial 60min
1oz Cascade 30min
1 oz Cascade dry hop 5 days

If you've never brewed it, you should try Janet's Brown Ale.  The recipe is included in Brewing Classic Styles, but I'm sure you can find it online too.  That one includes a few large late additions of Cascade and Centennial.  I think you would need about 3 oz Cascade, and 2 oz Centennial, which should be no problem for you.  I use pellets for a known bittering addition, then use homegrown for late.  It's a fantastic American Brown ale, and it always gets rave reviews from my friends.  PM me if you can't find the recipe and would like me to share it. 

Another nice recipe to use some of those would be Denny's Waldo Lake Amber.  Just a couple ounces in that one, but it's a great beer as well.  You could probably brew both with even a smaller harvest of homegrowns.  Cheers!

Janet's Brown is a fantastic brown ale.  Mike knocked it out of the park with that one.
I wholeheartedly concur with that recommendation!  You'll love it.
