Recipe Help: Late Hop Session Pale Ale
I'm looking to brew a 5% ABV "Pale Ale" that has the hop character of an IPA but lower alcohol and all IBUs from late additions. I'm planning on brewing this tomorrow.

I'm looking for feedback on the hop bill but plan on using some sort of combination of Amarillo & Cascade. For chilling I use a Terminator and can chill this size batch in about 20-25 minutes.

Batch Size: 45 Liters/12 Gallons
OG: 1.047
Mash Efficiency: 70%
Mash Temp: 153
Yeast: WLP 007 Dry English (re pitch from prior batch)
IBU: 37; Rager


Gambrinus ESB Malt: 9KG (20#)
Gambrinus Munich Malt 1KG (2#)


Amarillo 100g (3.5oz) 15 min 9.8%
Cascade 100g (3.5oz) 15 min 6.6%
Amarillo 40g (1.5oz) 0 min (Blichmann "Hop Rocket") 9.8%
Cascade 40g (1.5oz) 0 min (Blichmann "Hop Rocket") 6.6%
Amarillo 60g (2oz) Dry Hop 5 days 9.8%
Cascade 60g (2oz) Dry Hop 5 days 6.6%

I'd use a small bittering addition or better yet a FWH. Then I'd split the 15 min addition across 15, 10, 5

I ended up using some bravo for buttering. The Amarillo smelled so good that I took out all of the cascade and did amarillo...
