I'm going to brew an American stout sunday and wanted 75-77 Ibu.
I'm thinking additions at 60,30,15,0.

30 lbs two row
2 lbs black roasted barley
1.5 lbs chocolate malt
1.5 lbs crystal 40

US05 yeast
These are the hops I have.
magnum
amarillo
chinook
centennial
cascade
columbus
nuggett

I'm kind of leaning towards chinook or columbus as first additions.
Any suggestions on what hops I should use ?

Thanks Pat

Your grainbill (assuming you're doing at 10+ gallon batch) is identical to Jamil's Brewing Classic Styles grainbill. It's good that you're thinking like an award winning brewer!

In that recipe, he advocates 2 hop additions -- a 60 and a 5. Anything classically "American" will do for the 5 minute addition (from your list -- Amarillo, Centennial, Cascade, Columbus); anything high in AA will do for the 60 minute addition (Magnum, Nugget, Chinook, Columbus or even Amarillo or Cenntennial). I think extra additions would be fine but not necessary.

Mkling, A local micro made a american stout and he used I think four hop additions with an almost Ipa hop bill and I thought it tasted great so I thought I would give it a shot.

Thanks Pat

I think ramping up the hops is potentially great. It'll be a great beer whether it's malt focused or leaning a bit more towards the hops.

Let us know how it turns out.

lehr,

Did you brew this? I'm doing an American stout soon and am contemplating a .5oz or 1 oz columbus 10min addition. I'd like to keep it American but depart from the overly citrus hops.

Yes I did brew it but I have six tap handles and they are all full so I'm waiting for a keg to blow right now. The gravity sample tasted great, I have a carb line on the keg so it will be ready when I get room.
I'll let you know how it is soon as I can tap it.

I love a nice, hoppy stout. Not hoppy like and IPA, but one with discernable hop character to complement the roastiness and balance out the fullness/maltiness. I do three additions, enough to make the hops "there" without making them scream. I think pretty much any of yours will work; I guess I'd be inclined to try Amarillo myself.

Black roasted barley is about 500SRM while the roasted version is about 350SRM. Same effect though and not to be confused with Black malt, or black patent. Roasted barley and black roasted barley are unmalted. Hope that helps.
