This looks like a great beer so I would be happy to brew as is but if anyone has any other suggestions on how to improve it in terms of what I am going for please let me know. Also, does anyone have any suggestions for amount of gypsum to use and when for a beer like this. I am on Long Island, NY and we have generally pretty "soft water" for whatever its worth (dont have an analysis).
I like the hopping although I'm not a fan of columbus as a dryhop. Many do, though, so it's probably just my taste.
I might move some simcoe to 10 minutes or so, as I love it. But otherwise, I think it looks really good!
If it was my beer, I'd probably do this:
1.50 oz Columbus (Tomahawk) [14.00 %] - FWH
1 oz amarillo- 15 minutes
1oz columbus 1o minutes
1 oz simcoe 5 minutes
1 oz amarillo 5 minutes
1 oz simcoe 1 minute
1 oz amarillo 1 minute
1.00 oz Amarillo Dry Hop 7.0 days
1 oz simcoe dry hop 7.0 days
It's close, though, and not worth worrying about if you're happy with your schedule.
