This is exactly what I was hoping for. Thanks a ton NQ3X. The hops additions at different times sound perfect, I'll definitely do that. I'm using a website called beercalculus.hopville.com to figure the IBUs and OG/FG. I can't use ProMash simply because I'm cheap and too lazy to log into the Windows side of my Mac. LOL. Also, the boil is 2.5 Gallon, which may be why the numbers are off?
Okay, so, I toasted the 2-row this morning (excellent aroma, btw. SWMBO thought it stunk so I figure it must be good.
. I've modified the recipe again because according to hopville.com the IBUs went down below 30 when I changed the boil times on the hops. So... boil times are modified, with the addition of .5 oz of Columbus leaf hops @ ~14% alpha and 20 min. left in the boil. So, I'll add those at the same time I add the Kent Golding Leaf. This could be an interesting beer, indeed. Here's the full recipe with modifications for anyone who wants to run it through Beersmith and see the differences between that and hopsville.com.
