Ok, so i'm just breaking into really, really loving hoppy beers. I've always liked IPA's and IIPA's every now and then with certain foods, but recently i just want to drink them all the time.... it started when i was given the hops for the following brew by a guy who was getting out of brewing for a while.
.5 oz Summit 16% @ 90 min
.5 oz Summit 16% @ 60 min
.5 oz Centennial 7.5% @ 45 min
.5 oz Centennial @ 30 min
.5 oz cascade 6.3 % @ 20
.5 oz Cascade 15
.5 oz cascade 10
.5 oz cascade 5
.5 oz cascade flame out
1.5 oz Amarillo 7.3% 14 days.
grand total i should have gotten around 80-85 IBUs. This beer is one of my favorites i've brewed, if not my absolute favorite.
SO, i wanna do another IIPA. I'm looking for some good hop combinations, but different from what i've done here. On hand i have Amarillo, Fuggle, Wilamette, Nugget, Saaz, and Perle. Don't know that many of these would necessarily work together, but i'm not too sure.
i've thought of an all Amarillo, or possibly an American "C" hop IIPA (cascade, centennial, cluster, challenger, chinook).
what are your favorite combinations?
