Default all late Zythos BIPA

I am about to come into 3oz of Zythos when my neighbour comes back from the states and was thinking of doing a kind of belgian IPA with it and adding an oz each at 15,10 and 5 minutes.
Has anyone used this "hop blend" in such a anner before?
Recipe would kind of be like this;

2.5gallons
2lb Munich
2lb Vienna
1lb two-row
1lb pils
a bit of table sugar and some flaked wheat.
T-58 OR maybe I have some re-cultured LaChouffe yeast knocking about still.

Any imput on this would be a big help to me.
Cheers,
Lee

Just kegged a 10 gallon batch of a zythos amber, with additions at 15, 10, and 5. Bittered with Warrior. I used Wyeast 1968 which is a malt-forward yeast with lower attenuation. It is quite tasty but the recipe doesn't quite highlight the hops so not sure this is helpful to you. Go for it, the other thread referenced has several people saying zythos with a belgian yeast would be good!

I think this is a good idea, my only suggestion is to drop the 15 min addition and save that oz for dryhopping. Let us know how it goes!

wow,cheers lads.
The reasons for the yeast is that they are the only ones I can get my hands on. I mean,I have some other English ale yeast,but it wouldn't be Belgian then.
ahurd110, you reckon add a 60 minute bitering charge and dry hop with the other oz of Zythos?

Yes, I would bitter with the chinook and save the zythos for flavor/aroma. Both yeast choices seem good, I have used both with good results.

I disagree with bittering with Chinook, it has a harsh, nasty bitterness. Go with your original schedule, 15, 10 and 5. Do the calcs of course to make sure your IBU's remain in range with the style, but with a 2.5 gallon batch those hops should provide enough bitterness and highly accentuated hop flavors. I hop burst in this way all the time, either a tiny 60 minute addition, or no 60 minute at all, just 15, 10, 5. The flavor will be very noticeable.

again, I am shooting from the hip, you need to calculate this with the zythos AA% and good software/spreadsheet to make sure you stay with IBU range.
