Hey Sundell, I think that as jman mentioned, it will be a different brew without the Amarillo, Simcoe at 60 and 30 would be fine too. In fact, I have flipped the hops on this and done Simcoe at the end (5 min) and it was great. One of the best things about this recipe is that the grain bill can handle a lot of hops, and tastes good with many different hopping strategies. I don't think 75 IBU is pushing it, but I am a Portland hophead, so my perception may be skewed

I say brew it with Simcoe at 60 and 30. You can dial back the Simcoe at 60 if you want to decrease the bitterness-maybe to .75 oz.

Brew on, Tim

Seems everyone is sold out of Amarillo. The outstanding reviews of this beer make me want to try the original recipe. I think I'll hold out for Amarillo, if I can find it. If not I'm sure the all Simcoe version will be tasty!

Having made this recipe a number of times I think the malt of this can stand up to any hops you throw at it. Yes Amarillo is awesome but I think you will be happy with your hop bill as well. Don't delay making it, it is too delicious to wait.

I'm definitely going to go for it, with all Simcoe, this weekend. Yeah, can't wait any longer. My yeast starter will be a bit off as well - only have dark LME on hand (may alter the flavor just a tad). The original recipe will be brewed in due time, the more hoppy red beers in my fridge the better!

Dumb question for the recipe...is "Munich type 1 (10L)" the same thing as "Weyermann Cara Munich I"? The SRM is way off with this on Brewmasters Warehouse. Though I am using am American IPA as a guideline and this is a Red IPA.

I whipped up 5 gallons of this a few months ago and wanted to say this is hands down the best beer I have ever produced. Kudos and thanks for the excellent recipe!

Munich type 1 is a base malt at 8-10L
NOT CARAMUNICH. Cara Munich is a crystal malt.
