I'm drafting up an American barleywine recipe and am aiming for some woody/earthy/piney flavors and aromas. I was thinking of using the same blend of hops across each addition, a la DFH90. So:
--2 parts Simcoe + 1 part Centennial + 1 part Chinook at 90min
--ditto at either 20min or FWH
--ditto at flameout
for IBUs in the 100-110 range.
I've heard of people having luck with these three hops, but I haven't quite seen them spread equally across the recipe like this. I know it will probably taste good, but I'm wondering if the flavors will get muddled together - if so I'd rather shuffle the additions, or even just keep it simple by sticking with one or two hops. But my gut feeling is that I want some components from each of these varities.
