I would appreciate any pointers, comments and advice on this recipe:
Batch volume 11 liters (roughly 2,5 gallons)
Pale Malt 2500 g
Special B 200 g
Vienna 300 g
Chocolate Malt 0 g
Northdown 8.4% alpha 15 g 60 minutes
Northdown 8.4% alpha 10 g 15 minutes
Tettnanger 3.8% alpha 10 g 10 minutes
Tettnanger 3.8% alpha 20 g 5 minutes
Styrian Golding 4.0% alpha 50 g dry hopped
Yeast: Safale S-04
Planning on adding the chocolate malt the last 10 minute of the mash.
Sorry for the metric units - I'm from Denmark :-)
I've brewed with Special B before, and really appreciate the flavor it brought to that brew.
I'm looking for an 'accessible' IBA - nice hop aroma and flavor without being too overwhelming!
It should be said that this is my first all-grain attempt after six semi-grain batches, all of which have been huge successes - in my humble opinion.
