I think you should let the batch mature without dry hopping. What's the point of brewing a Red
if you hop it like an IPA? You'll drown the flavors that make a Red a Red.It's an individual

I really like pairing Simcoe with Amarillo. I am a huge hop head and this is my attempt to brew

I recently brewed a partial mash IPA to try out a new mini-mash tun I built that holds up to
