Default Hoppy Hoppy Red

Would love to make a hoppy red, similar to Green Flash Hop Head Red. I think this will be my extract send-off beer before we make the switch to all-grain. Would like any feedback on the recipe I put together. The malt bill is basically Jamil's Evil Twin plus an extra lb of DME. And I'm looking to amarillo hop-burst the hell out of it. Will be doing pretty much a full boil ~6.25-6.5 gal preboil

8 lbs Light DME
12 oz Caramel 40
6 oz Caramel 120
4 oz Pale Chocoloate

0.5 oz Columbus (60 min)
0.5 oz Nugget (20 min)
1 oz Amarillo (15 min)
1 oz Amarillo (10 min)
1 oz Amarillo (5 min)
1 oz Amarillo (1 min)
Whirlpool 15 min before cooling
3 oz Amarillo (dry hop ten days)

2 packets S-05

I would do a longer whirlpool (30 min.), add the amarillo in just two additions (10 min. and 0/whirlpool) and shorter dry hop (3 days), but that's more a matter of personal preference than anything else.

Thanks for the feedback. I'm going for a ton of amarillo flavor and aroma, so I'm thinking I'll still do the hop bursting method I described. Probably will take your advice on the 30 minute whirlpool, though! The zombie dust recipe that is floating around uses the same 15, 10, 5, 1 method, so I thought I'd try that out with an amarilllo red.

Thinking about dropping the Nugget at 20. Thoughts?

4oz of choc malts is too much in my opinion. I think it might turn out more brown than red. I've made that mistake in my last attempt at an IRA.

Do it. Nugget is kind of dank, piney, which might work against your amarillo.

Thanks for the quick replies. Would you cut down the choc in half or sub with something else?

I'd probably skip it. I think the caramels will provide a fair amount of color. Maybe add a bit of amber malt.
