I'll take out the biscuit malt, 1 lb of DME and add 1 lb of sugar. I'm thinking about making this beer a bit tropical, which is why I was thinking about Citra. However, I'll probably add some other Hops in my hop additions.
One of my criteria is good balance, but I have no idea how to do so as I'm still a noob. It's ok that it'll be very bitter, but I'd like it to be balanced in hoppyness and maltiness like the Pliny that I recently tasted.
I was thinking
7.5lbs Light DME
1 lb table sugar
12 oz Crystal 40L
Should I add something else here???
2 oz bittering hops, 60 min. Still not sure but I'm thinking either columbus, centennial, or simcoe, or Amarillo... Something that'll fit the citrusy tropical notes.
1 oz Nelson Sauvin 15 min
.5 oz Citra 15 min
maybe .5 oz Galaxy 15 min
.5 oz Galaxy 10 min
.5 oz Citra 10 min
1 oz Citra 5 min
1 oz Amarillo 0 min
1 oz Citra Dry Hops
1 oz Galaxy Dry Hops
15 min, whirlfloc or irish moss??
I have no idea on what yeast I should use. I was thinking maybe safale us-05, Wyeast Forbidden Fruit 3463, or WLP001
Thanks everyone for the comment. Sorry for being such a noob at this. Only my second batch of beer ever.
