Been really anxious to brew up something w/ these bad boys. Any comments/changes are welcomed!

I was thinking just a single infusion at 154F and a single pack of US-05. Thoughts?

Oh my god.. that recipe looks great! I love summit hops .. I use them alot. And that hopping is going to be in your face big time.

I'd add a decent amount of complexity to your grainbill, maybe even bump into into amber territory to balance it some. Late-hopping works best with amber styles for me. Crystal 60 would be good, but I'd use even darker crystal, or a mix. Maybe 1/2 lb. X40 and a 1/4 pound x120 or special B (x180). Maybe some munich and/or vienna in large amounts. Large as in all or most of your base malt

Cheers and good luck!

Yeah I just plugged the 60 in and it didn't do too much for the color unless adding a pound or more. Is a pound too much? Maybe a mix would be a good idea.

As to adding more Vienna, I just tapped a Vienna/Centennial SMaSH and absolutely fell in love w/ it. I considered adding more here, but I really want the hops to shine through since I don't have much first hand experience w/ Summit.

Sweet! That was the idea.

Summit is a wonderful hop but it is easy to use too much. I have brewed many beers with it. I would drop .5-1 oz out of the dryhop. 1.5 would be a bit overpowering IMO.

I made this one, if anything I'd back the crystal down to 5% next time.

I'm going to do another IPA with some and use it as a FWH with a small amout of a low AA but harsh bittering hop to give it bite.

Cool, I just figured I'd have an extra 1/2 oz leftover so why not throw it in there. I dry-hop w/ an herb ball in the keg, so I could always use the whole 1.5 ounces and just pull the ball out when the aroma is to my liking.

Conroe, I'll keep that in my mind. 1/2 a lb right now brings it out to almost 5%...so maybe I'll just go w/ some Crystal 80 for color.

Actually my best beer is dry-hopped with exactly 1.5 oz. It's wonderful! Not too much either. It's pretty malty though.

Well I'm headed to my LHBS to pick this up. I was thinking of going w/ a 1/2 lb of crystal 80/120. Which one would you guys go with?
