I should be brewing this Friday and have been narrowing down my bitter recipe to some of the finer details.
Last thing I need to do is get the exact hop schedule down. I will be using almost exclusively EK Goldings pellets. I don’t quite have enough so I am going to throw in some Hallertau at the 60 min point to make up the #s. I don’t want to buy anything new when I have lots of hops at home already.
So right now (46l - 12 gal - batch):
60 min boil - 90g EKG / 30g Haller. (27-28 IBU)
Flavour / Aroma - 20 g EKG
Last week S Scoggin mentioned many english brewers would make their late addition at the 5 min mark.
Curious to know what others might do. I want some nice bitterness / some hop aroma and flavor / but I still want to detect my crystal and MO malt flavor.
May also dry hop. I can split this batch in two if I want and try dry hopping one keg and not the other.
