I have the grains and 4 types of hops at hand. I am wanting to make a crazy hop flavored beer with a little malt coming through. Here is what I am thinking and I would love to hear some feedback. Background: I have 'mastered' the double IPA and now I want to back off the strength and create a beer with the focus on hops, hops and more hops.
Anyway, I am shooting for OG: 1.072, IBU: 65 (too high?)
12 lbs 2 row
1 lb Biscuit malt
1.5 lbs Red (german) wheat
1 lb Honey malt
I have lots of Magnum, Amarillo, Willamette, and Cascade
I will be using Safale US-05
Here is my proposed hop schedule:
FWH: 2 oz Amarillo
60 min: 1 oz Magnum
25 min: 1 oz Amarillo
15 min: 1 oz Amarillo, 1 oz Cascade
5 min: 2 oz Amarillo, 2 oz Cascade
Dry Hop in keg: 1 oz Amarillo, 1 oz Cascade
Using the hops I have, what schedule would you propose to make a super hoppy beer with the focus on flavor/aroma? I have a pound of each hop I listed.
Thank you for your help!
