Careful, that honey might sweeten that IPA a bit. Happy to see the dry hop. Keep us posted.

Default honey


I don't think it'll come out sweet. That US-05 will destroy that honey. I like to use honey to bring up alcohol content sometimes, and it usually works out good for me. Use flavored honey to impart different flavors, and the same goes for molasses/maple syrup. They put a good twist on browns/porters/stouts in my opinion. I recommend (god knows i haven't yet) doing a couple smash brews to test the flavors imparted with each. I will try to get on that before too long. Happy brewing all. Cheers!

This beer needs more hops. It's still sitting in the primary, but it isn't bitter enough for my taste -- maybe I'm a blooming hop head. It's good, but it's just not 200 IBUs.

I'm going to brew this again and I'm going to double up on all of the hops and I'm going to change the simcoe to FWH and add the Amarillo at 45 minutes. Maybe I'll add something at 15, just for fun. I'll revisit this recipe a few brews from now.

Suggestions welcome.

I would use the original grain bill and this hop schedule.
1oz Simcoe - FWH
1oz Magnum - 60
1oz Simcoe - 30
1oz Amarillo - 15
1oz Amarillo - 3
1oz Amarillo - Dry

Should get you about 100 IBUs and some great hop flavor and aroma

Greg,

That seems like a great modification -- I think I'll give it a go.

I'm still pretty new to this, so I'm curious why you kept the amarillo at the end. Does the amarillo give a better smell? Or does it get overpowered when it's boiled longer?

Thanks for your help.

amarillo hops are more for flavor and aroma. they're nor bred for bittering. they taste good, and have good aroma, but aren't oily, which is what provides the hop bitterness
