Hi all! I'm looking for a critique of a recipe I came up with last night and am gonna brew this evening. Basically I'm thinking a big, bitter, resiney, citrusy IPA. I have 12oz of chinook leaf hops and i'm gonna go get some grains ground today. I've never used Maris Otter before so I'm thinking about this:
7lb Maris Otter
1lb crystal 40l
3oz chinook 60
2oz chinook 30
2oz chinook 5
2oz chinook 0
3oz chinook dry hop for 1.5 weeks
100% RO water + 1tsp CaCl + 2tsp Gyp
Mash at 152, use US-05
My efficiency is usually in the low 60s for some reason so that puts me at like 7.2% abv for a 5gal batch.
I love my beers bitter, hence the 60 min. Otherwise I figured it was a pretty decent hop distribution. Any thoughts?
