American Pale Ale Recipe Critique
 
Any help/suggestions for my next brew day would be much appreciated.
Heres what Im looking at so far!

American Pale Ale (5 Gallons)

Fermentables:
9# 2 Row
1# Crystal 40
.5# Wheat

Hops:
.75 oz Columbus (60 min)
1 oz Centennial (30 min)
1 oz Citra (Flameout)
(and maybe half an ounce of citra for dry hopping?)

Yeast:
Wyeast 1272 Amercan Ale 2

Mash at 154 for 60 mins, Batch Sparge at 170 + 60 min boil

Looks like a good basic APA to me.

I would use Maris Otter instead of generic 2Row. Adds malt complexity without weighing it down with specialty malts.

If you go the MO route, I would get rid of the Crystal malt, or at least lower it to ½ lb.

FWIW I like the recipe as is… if I had to critique Id say add some more late hops (15 minutes to flameout).

The basic recipe is good! Move the 30 minute hops to 15 minutes, and you're all set!

I'd add some roasted barley, a few pounds of chocolate malt and 3 oz of apple cores......


Just kidding. Looks good to go. For my tastes I would add a bit more late addition hops but other than that it should be tasty.

I'm also in favor of moving the 30m addition to 20m or 15m- you get better flavor that way. Otherwise, looks good to go! Let us know how it turns out!
