I'm not going to bore you by telling you how I got into this predicament. Suffice to say that my mind was confused BEFORE going into my supplier and, after talking to the guy and NOT MAKING NOTES, a week later I'm completely lost in space.
Here's where I am. I am brewing an all-grain, pale tomorrow - in about 22 hours. My brew store is a round trip of 4 hours, so the supplies I have are what I'm going to have to use. My grain is 10.5 pounds of 2-row, .5 pounds of Crystal 45 and .5 pounds of Cara pils.
Here is the quiz. I'm going to tell you the hops that I have and would like your suggestion as to how to use them. I THOUGHT that I knew what I was going to do, but the hops that I happen to have are NOT what I had asked for when procuring supplies (nuff said about that).
1 oz. Chinook
2 oz. Centennial
2 oz. Columbus
Assuming a 60 minute boil, how much of what do I use when? I'm nearly sure that I want to use all of the Columbus to dry-hop. If you agree with that, that leaves 2 ounces of Centennial and 1 ounce of Chinook for the bitter, flavor and aroma.
My "sense" is that I want to do something like chinook at 60, 1 ounce of centennial at 10 and the last once of Centennial at 5. With the Columbus for the dry hop.
Can anyone tell me if that would be a decent idea?
Thanks much in advance,
