I have a NB kit for and IPA that I've done before. I like it, but it's not as overtly hoppy as I'd like. I just ordered a lb. of Centennial hops and a lb. of Magnum, which will hopefully arrive in the next week. I'd like to mess with this extract recipe's hops to bring out more aroma and flavor. I'm an extract brewer with steeping and would like to avoid dry-hopping, as I have been fermenting in primary (buckets) and don't have a carboy for secondary.
The original recipe:
1 lb. Caramalt
3.15 lbs gold malt syrup (60 min.)
6 lbs gold malt syrup (15 min.)
1 oz Nugget (60 min.)
.5 oz Kent Goldings (30 min)
1 oz Kent Goldings (15 min)
.5 oz Kent Goldings (1 min)
1 pkg Notty (although I have several)
Any suggestions to alter hop schedule with Centennial and Magnum would be much appreciated. As stated, I'll have a lb of each, and I also have the hops from the original recipe, so I can be somewhat flexible.
Thanks in advance.
