Skip the 2-row, it won't add anything because you are extract brewing. Maybe also try 1/2#of victory malt for a little bready goodness?

Also, I would use a higher AA hop for the 60 minute addition, so that can use less hops and use the delicious amarillo for flavor and aroma. And add the 15 and 10 minute additions at 5 or flame out and maybe dry hop?

definitely ditch the 2-row for something with more character (biscuit, munich, etc) or just drop it.

id split up the 30min add or move it later. theres not enough flavor contribution from a 30min add to do that big of one. it needs a dry hop too, so id just move nearly everything 15mins forward, i.e 15min, flameout, DH instead

cool, thanks for the advice. I have no experiences with the dry hop, but I will read up a bit. will centennial or Amarillo work as a dry hop addition? Which would lend more a citrus flavor, Amarillo correct?

Here's a revamped version:

% LB OZ MALT OR FERMENTABLE PPG °L
59% 6 0 Briess GOLD LME 34 5 ~
31% 3 3 Extra Pale Liquid Malt Extract 34 1 ~
5% 0 8 Weyermann Munich Type I 35 7 ~
5% 0 8 Crystal 40L 34 40 ~


USE TIME OZ VARIETY FORM AA
boil 60 mins 2.0 Centennial pellet 10.0
boil 15 mins 1.0 Amarillo pellet 7.0
post-boil 1 min 1.5 Cascade pellet 5.5
dry hop 7 days 1.0 Amarillo pellet 7.0

In theory, if the 2-row were included, could you get some additional sugars from the specialty grains? But probably negligible?

Nope. Munich will self-convert and the crystal doesn't need to be mashed to extract its sugars (only steeped.)


edit to add:
Your revised recipe looks great. Good luck!

+1, esp on the recipe. however, IIRC thru some testing, it was discovered that crystal malts actually do contain a small amount of starch so mashing them does actually improve the extraction and attenuation. (its been awhile since i read it so I may be entirely wrong)

Split your 60 min addition in half and use 1 oz of the Centennial as a first wort hop.

Love it! I might be inclined to add 1 ounce of centennial minute hops and add them at 5 minutes, though, if you want a nice hoppy flavor.

I would also add that you should replace the 2-row with some munich. My partial mash IPA looks like this:

5.75 lbs Light DME
2.25 lbs 2-Row
1.25 lbs Munich (10L)
.5 lbs Crystal 60

You could probably make something very similar by using Munich and your C-40. Also, If you added in some Simcoe in place of the Cascade I think you would like it, especially if you're going for something fruity. My pale ale is Simcoe/Amarillo dry hopped with Centennial and Simcoe. I think most people who have tried it love the Simcoe/Amarillo combo.
