Hefeweizen yeast for an English ale? It certainly is different. You have more of a American pale there than an English one.

Well you are going to have a bit more of an American flavor and aroma to it due to the Centennial at the end. It is pretty pungent as an aroma/flavor addition.

Personally I would try to arrange for the EKG to finish and keep the american hops in the 60-40 minute range.

If you have to finish with the cascade or centennial I would go with the cascade and EKG .

What temp are you going to ferment on the hefe yeast?

Your right. it should be a 10A- American Pale Ale. Does this look like it would be a good tasting beer? I am just starting to experiment with my own recipes.

Ok. Changed it around a bit per bargainfittings suggestions. How does this look? I planned to ferment the WLP300 at 70 degrees.

You may get some banana flavor with that yeast so keep that in mind in the final analysis. Good Luck
