Just received 1# of 2013 Amarillo and a 1# of Hallertau Mittlefruh for some pilsners.
I am doing a Helles right away but was thinking about my next batch of Innkeeper bitter.
7# Golden promise
0.25# Caramunich II
1# Sugar to boil.
Average SG: 1.045
1 oz Fuggle @60
1 oz EKG @ 30
1 oz Styrian Goldings @ 0
Sometimes dry hopped with Styrian Goldings.
Average IBU: 25
0.25 oz Merkur or more Mittlefruh around 60 minutes.
1.00 oz Mittlefruh @ 20 and 10 minutes.
EDIT* Use 1-3 oz Mittlefruh to dry hop??? YEs/No? I don’t know if these add more aromatics or grassy notes to late stage hopping.
Average IBU: 25?
I say Merkur for bittering as I have great success with it lately for good neutral 15% bittering with a bit of citrus aroma still.
But mainly what are thoughts regarding the grainbill/ Mittlefruh working or clashing in general here.
I have only used it for Pils and dunkels.
