I want a seriously hoppy, bitter yet flavorful beer with awesome aroma. Ive made big IPAs before but I want this one to be even better.
Extract with steeping grains (steep 30mins? at 150f?…thoughts?)
5gal batch……6gal boil.
Wyeast American Ale 1056 or 1272…not sure yet. (Thoughts?) Will make a 2liter starter.
Servomyces and Whirfloc.
7lbs Golden Light LME
2lbs Golden Light DME
1lb Crystal 10L
Hops: (all pellet)
60 mins- 3oz Magnum
15mins- 3oz Centennial
10mins- 2oz Centennial
5mins- 2oz Centennial
DryHop for about a 1.5 weeks with 2oz Centennial, 2oz Citra and 2oz Cascade.
Im planning on fermenting at about 62-64f…1.5 weeks Primary and then add the dryhop for another 1.5 weeks.
Any thoughts/suggestions on the hop schedule? I want big flavor and strong bitterness…also great strong aroma…Any ideas on steeping time/temp. Also which yeast would be better for this…American Ale l or ll? The beer will be kegged, prolly carbed at 15-20psi for a few days.
