Wow, the hydro sample of this tastes simply amazing. Can't wait for this one to be done!

mmm looks good!

I don't have any black malt but have an ample supply of roast barley and chocolate. Could I use one of these to add colour? Should I use them in the mash, or throw some in the sparge just to extract colour and not too much flavour?

ChillWill, I have not tried it with other roast malts but I think it will work, just be different. Add to the mash, you want just a touch of roast character to counter the sweetness of the crystal malts.

Cool, thanks. I don't have any cascade either, but I've got citra, ekg, chinook, simcoe, amarillo on hand, which should I swap it for? More amarillo?

I wasn't able to get any amarillo, so I made this with chinook, simcoe and cascade. The sample tasted amazing, so I can't imagine chinook, simcoe and amarillo being bad :-)

I've done Chinook, simcoe, and citra combo before. Very tasty combo.

ive done simcoe/amarillo/amarillo with this one before. came out great (i still prefer the cascade in there, though). you could always BLEND together your simcoe and amarillo and then use this blend for all stages of hopping. sounds like an interesting and tasty experiement.

I would do a split of Simcoe and Amarillo at the 5 minute mark. I have done this and it is very good. (1 oz of each)

I brewed this last weekend using all Falconer's Flight hops on the same schedule and maintaining the IBU's. The krausen dropped today so I took a sample and hit the predicted FG of 1.015 using US05. This beer smells amazing with the falconer's flight hops and already tastes amazing after 5 days in primary. I can't wait till it's done.
