Glad you tried it. What was your hop schedule with those hops? I am assuming you bittered with Apollo?

Cheers,
Tim

I ended up getting some Cascade, Apollo, and Summit. I'll play around with them to see how I want to add them in, but I really need to start planning ahead and ordering my hops online instead of just putting myself at the mercy of the LHBS.

I did indeed, but it was a last-minute swap for the Summit. I originally subbed Apollo for Amarillo, Summit for Simcoe. I don't know why, probably just whatever I remember from a chart somewhere. I did 5 grams of Apollo @ FWH and 60 mins (20.1% aa), 11 grams of Summit @ 20 mins (17%) and 15 grams of Cascade @ 5 mins. Still thinking about how to dry hop. Even adjusting down for aa's I probably ended with 85 IBUs or so. It might be a bitter red, but we shall see.

If that looks bad, don't tell me. I was shooting from the hip. I'm still planning a full 8 gallon batch in the future, but I'll order the right hops in advance next time.

Looks good. The malt tends to stand up well to whatever you throw at it. I have never used Apollo or Summit, but I have had an all Summit IPA and it was great. I might dry hop with Summit and Cascade?

2012 Hop Harvest is just around the corner, so Simcoe and Amarillo should show up some time in October. BC hop farm here in the valley are beginning harvest on 8/22 and say it will be a good year for hops.

Thinking of brewing this with:

1 oz Centennial 60 min
1 oz Amarillo 30 min
1 oz Summit 5 min

Thoughts?

I brewed a 5 gallon batch of this a couple months back w/ Magnum for bittering and 2 oz of Falconer's Flight (or was it Falconer's 7C's?) addded evenly over the final 15 minutes, and another oz keg-hop (I only had 3 ozs on hand). I used the original recipe/grainbill that's heavier in crystal.

It's good but I would call it more of a West Coast "Amber" than an IPA. Not sure if the Falconer's hops just aren't as strong as I planned (1st time using them), or if 15 minutes was too early and I should have started the additions later, or if the grainbill just needs even more hops to cut through the malt. Maybe all the above.

But it's still a nice beer, not as in your face hoppy as I thought, but it's tasty and definitely different than anything I've brewed before.

I'll definitely be trying again, maybe toning down the crystal a tad like you have done, and look forward to throwing some Simcoe and Amarillo at it next time. I've got a good amount of both stashed away in the freezer and I love all DFH beers with that combo so I'm looking forward to brewing that one up sometime soon.

I have never used Summit, but I have used Amarillo at 5 min or FO on a lot of IPAs and that is always a good choice. However, if you are willing to be the Summit guinea pig, please report your results!

DustBow, I think if you do as mentioned; and bring the crystal down a bit you will find the hops shining through a bit more. I have also tried decreasing the munich to 3 lbs and the upping the 2 row to 8.5 lbs, and that made the hops pop a bit more too. Glad it turned out OK and you are trying another iteration.

After reading a bit I might add the Summit at FO because it sounds like they add quite a bit of onion flavor if you put them in any sooner. Might push the Amarillo closer to FO as well. I'll hopefully be able to dry hop with some cascade from my hop harvest.

Don't push it into a decision, just let it decide what kind of beer it is on its own.

I just snuck a test of mine that's been going for almost 2 weeks, it seems to be coming along nicely. Gonna dry hop it mid-week and bottle next week.
