Hi all, looking for some input on my extract homebrew
I'm trying to brew what was originally a Sierra nevada clone, but I think this time I'm going to go a little hoppier, and it was never THAT close to SN, just a satisfying, drinkable pale ale, nice and crisp, sorta citrusy.
long story short, I lost my recipe, and am trying to recreate it, this time with some better brewing practices and whole hops.
Aim: Create nice crisp, moderatley hoppy pale ale
Yeast: Nottingham Ale Yeast

Hops: last time I used 1 1/2 oz centennial at beginning of the 60 minutes, and then 1 3/4 oz amarillo and 1/4 oz centennial 13 minutes to end of boil
This time I just ordered a mess of fresh whole hops from freshops.com, I got amarillo cenntenial cascade chinook and perle 3,2,3,2,2 oz respectively
I'm planning on using 1 1/4 centennial and 1/2 cascade at beginning of boil and then 1 1/4 amarillo and another 1/2 of cascade

2 lb DME

1/4 lb crystal 120L

somewhere between 1/2 - 1 lb crystal 40L
Whaddya think?

Is that for 5 gallons?

You need about another 4 pounds of DME.

I'd cut the crystal 40 in half, and drop the crystal 120 (or use the 120 very, very sparingly if you're going to use it).

I'd use 6 pounds of DME, and steep half a pound of crystal 40. That'd be a starting gravity of around 1.053.

I like OCD's recipe a lot better. Just sub in your hops.
