Default APA using amarillo anyone?

I've been making APA's lately with great results using combos of Cascade, chinook and Cluster. I want to make a variation using some Amarillo but unsure where the best place in the hopping schedule and how much is best.

Anyone make a great APA with a bit of Amarillo in it. Here in Oz its one of the more expensive hops so I'm not looking at using a stack of it though when I have a hop bank full of the other above hops already.

Cheers guys.

I love amarillo. To save cash you could also do cluster for bittering and then finish with some amarillo at 15 minutes for some flavor and aroma.

Look in the recipes section - Dude's Lake Walk Pale Ale. Good reviews & award winning.

I normally dry hop this as well in secondary. Any harm or overload in doing both the 15 min and dry hop using it?

Ahh thanks for the link mate. I haven't tried Simcoe and might pick up some time soon and give it a try.

He dry hops with a fair bit of Amarillo too answering my question already.

cheers

I just brewed 5 gallons of an IPA with 1.5 oz of Amarillo at 60, 1 oz at 15, 1 oz at 5, 0.5 oz at 0, and 1 oz dry hopped. It's not ready yet, but the recipe has good reviews.

So you're okay using it for 15 minutes and dry hop.

I have done an all-Amarillo pale ale a couple of times. Very tasty by itself or paired with Cascade. Use it as you mentioned - a flavor addition near the end of the boil and dry hopping.

I just recently did a mostly all amarillo ipa with warrior for bittering and it was fantastic. For a 6 gallon batch, my hop schedule was .70oz warrior at 60, 1oz amarillo at 10, 1oz amarillo at 5, 1oz amarillo at 0 and 1oz amarillo to dry hop. I'm going to make this again and add some cascade in the dry hop as well.

I brew similarly, but I've been bittering with Magnums lately. I got half a pound of whole Magnums...they're beautiful, 14.2%AA.

Back on topic....an APA using Amarillo is a great idea. A SMASH using Amarillo, WPL001 and US grown 2-row is a thing of American greatness. Just don't forget to mash high and long.
