Default Hop schedule suggestions for Amarillo SMASH

Hello all,

I am gonna do either a vienna or munich SMASH with amarillo hops. I'd like it to be pretty hoppy. I will be using 10lbs of grain for a 5.5gal recipe.

I was thinking of this:

1oz@FWH
.5oz@20min
.25oz@10min
.25oz@5min
1oz@dry hop in keg

Do you think there are enough late additions?

If it were me, I'd move that entire FWH addition to 20 min. Maybe the 5 min, too. You'll be getting enough aroma from your dry hopping to where that 5 min won't do much. Put it in at 20 and pull more flavor outta those suckers!

So 1.5oz @ 20min?

what about a bittering addition?

Do you know the AA rating on your Amarillo?? .5 oz may be enough, you don't have a lot flavors there to balance out with bittering.

.5 oz @ 60
1.5 oz @ 20
1 oz @ Dryhop

That's what I would do , at least. Your original schedule will make great beer too, I'm sure - smashes are pretty hard to mess up.

I did a 5 gallon recipe with 12 lbs 2 Row, and my schedule was:

1 oz 9.4 @ 60 mins
1 oz @ 20 mins
1 oz @ 15 mins
1 oz @ 10 mins
1 oz @ 5 mins
1 oz @ flameout

2 oz @ secondary

It turned out awesome!!!! I used US-05

do vienna, not munich. munich is a bit too malty for amarillo in my opinion. I did a good munich smash with chinook, the spiciness of the chinook meshed well with the maltiness.

For your FWH/late addition combo, I think even a small amount (half oz) at 60 helps out a lot. I know you want all hop flavor, but a 60 minute addition helps give ur beer a good hop backbone. I've done the "no 60 min addition" thing and I thought the hop character was weak, and didn't age well with the beer.

I did a maris otter/amarillo SMaSH. Drinking it at this moment, as a matter of fact!

I toasted 2 pounds of MO, and used 9 pounds of untoasted MO.

For hopping, I did:


1.00 oz Amarillo [9.50 %] (FWH) Hops 34 IBU
0.50 oz Amarillo [9.50 %] (15 min) Hops 7.7 IBU
0.50 oz Amarillo [9.50 %] (5 min) Hops 3.1 IBU

1.00 oz Amarillo [9.50 %] (Dry Hop 7 days) Hops

That was perfect!

Just picked up a 10lb bag of Vienna, also gonna use .5lb carapils for some color/flavor/foam. Gonna take all of this into consideration, thanks for all your help.

Does 152F seem like a good mash temp?

152 is a good mash temp. It will finish somewhat dry, and have some unfermentables to have some good malty flavor too!
