looks good, but id move that 25min addition to 15-20mins to gain some more flavor from it.

what yeast you thinking?

You know I almost went with Nottingham, but at the last min decided to get the wyeast 1056

I'm going for a clean, crisp classic pale ale, easy to drink.

I don't see why it wouldn't work. My limited knowledge says so anyways.

Yea it looks like it will just looking for suggestions, I took the one of changing the hops from 25 to 15. going to bring the IBU down to 31.3.

Looking to keep the IBU around 35.

Should I dry hop with centennial instead?

either would be perfectly fine. Personally I like S-05 better than both, but its basically the same as 1056

for the dry hop, go with whichever smells better to u or mix them if you cant decide

oh btw, you didnt list the C60 weight, but apparently is 9oz

Yeah half pound for the C60 I corrected that, thanks!

Good idea on the dry hop, how much should I use?
