Posted in thread: Simcoe and Amarillo don't go well together! on 05-25-2015 at 06:20 PM
I expected the "you're insane!" comments but the idea to do 1/2 or 1/4 the Simcoe per ounce of
Amarillo is an interesting one. I will try that!

I thought that title might raise some eyebrows.I just made a 5 gallon 8% IPA with 7oz Simcoe
and 7oz Amarillo, and I think these hops really clash with one another! Simcoe is so piney and
Amarillo is ...

More Saaz, or some Hallertauer Mittelfruh if you want a little more German flavor.

I have a 5 gal, 1.030 OG beer that I want to add 2lb of sucrose do during ferment (yes, I know

I'm not trying to mask anything. I'm trying to make a very sweet IPA and I want to *balance*
the sweetness with sourness. Just like CocaCola.

Thanks for the replies. I was planning on sweeting the beer to around CocaCola levels. Maybe

I have an IPA fermenting that I want to put phosphoric acid to get a slightly sour taste. I'm

It is in fact crystal clear. I used polyclar and geletin and the clarity is very nice.I have
