Help me choose my second dry hop!
This is a "west coast rye amber" kinda thing if that helps. I will be dry hopping 2 ounces, one ounce of columbus, and one other hop, I need help with the "other". Please no other recipe suggestions, the beer is already brewed, I'll be dry hopping this weekend, and still haven't made up my mind. So I came here for help :)

If this was your beer, what would be your second ounce of dry hop?

7 1/4# us 2-row
2# rye malt
1# munich
8 oz Carastan
8 oz crystal 120
8 oz Victory
4 oz crystal 60
1 oz Carafa Special II

1/2 oz Columbus @ 60
3/4 oz Columbus @10
1/2 oz Centennial @ 10
1/2 oz Columbus @ 0
1/2 oz Centennial @ 0

Amarillo FTW:rockin:

I personally prefer Columbus as a bittering hop, so I vote all Cascade!

Amarillo is a badass hop!

To Couevas and AZ IPA: I actually brewed a simcoe+amarillo pale and dry hopped with, well you guess it.....

cascade! Very good beer. enderwig, you can't go wrong with any of the hops listed.

I would go with Cascade to get the citrus twang.


oswegan 09-30-2009 09:30 PM

simcoe, amarillo or centennial.

humann_brewing 09-30-2009 09:34 PM

simcoe or even crystal

Cascade gets my vote.

I vote Centennial. I like to dry hop with the type of hops used in the boil for some reason. I guess if Centennial is good enough to use as a boil/flameout addition, it's good enough to dry hop with. Just my $.02 :D

Mt Hood would give you a greater variety of aromas than any of the other choices. The others are all similar to each other. (not saying they're exactly the same kiddies)
