Golden Ale- First Recipe Formulation
So I had a friend who brewed a nice hoppy Golden Ale from a kit he got at Oak Barrel Winecraft in Berkeley, when I lived out there. I loved it, and rather than order the kit, want to use it as a jumping off point to make something of my own. The kit uses Willamette and Cascade hops, and I'll probably sub in Simcoe for the Willamette. How does this sound? I'm particularly hoping for advice/affirmation of my hop schedule. This is my first go at making my own recipe, so I'm trying to keep it simple.
Partial Mash
3# 2-row
8 oz. Honey Malt
8 oz. Flaked Wheat

4.5 # extra light DME

1 oz. Simcoe Hops (60 min)
.5 oz Simcoe (15 min)
.5 oz Cascade (15 min)
.5 oz Simcoe (5 min)
.5 ox Cascade (5 min)

Safale S-05 Dry yeast

Don't know the exact AA% of your hops, but Simcoe's about 2x Willamette. I'm getting something like 70 IBUs in a ~1.060 OG brew, which is IPA-like hoppiness.

If that's what you're after, then go for it! :mug:
