Pairing roasted malt and Hops.
« on: March 29, 2018, 05:44:09 PM »
I have some Crisp Pale Chocolate malt that I need to use.  I also have Amarillo hops.

Here's the plan.
97% Pilsner or 2 row
3% Pale Chocolate.
Hoppy pale ale profile.
OG 1.060
US05

I'm curious how the roasted malt and the Amarillo will get along.

All critiques welcome.

I use Amarillo in my American brown ale which uses a 3:1 pale choc/regular choc for the roasted malt portion and its very nice in my opinion.  YMMV

Thank you very much.
How's your hop schedule look?

Here's what I Have worked out so far.

80% 2 row
8% wheat
7% C40L
4% pale chocolate
1% chocolate 450.

Depending on my OG I'll work out the hop bill.
Amarillo and Chinook as you suggested.
I think I'll try S04 or WLP008

Thanks for your help.

I use Janet's brown ale recipe. Removed the carapils added pale chocolate and added a little more wheat.

ah - yeah.  JBA is good, but too dark for me for brown ale.  I don't have it right in front of me, but off the top of my head my recipe takes yours but replace the wheat with Vienna, bump the Crystal to 60 (or is it Eng Dark 70/80 I can't recall) and move the total chocolate down to 3.5% and I believe that's it.  cheers!
