Default Centennial/Amarillo IPA

Do you think Centennail and Amarillo could go well together? I was thinking of modifying Bells Two Hearted to include some Amarillo which I have en masse. I think it could be good, no?

What do you think? I have limited experience with IPA compared to a lot of you and would love some advice. I would like to keep it around the same IBU range that isn't too crazy (I think it's like 55)...

For what it's worth, I recently made an APA with Centennial and Amarillo that turned out fantastic. I think it's a great combination.

Add Cascade too..

Centennial + Cascade + Amarillo = One AWESOME IPA!

OK so here is my plan:

OG-1.057
FG-1.013
IBU-57
ABV-5.7%

10 lbs Pale Malt (2 Row)
2 lbs Vienna Malt
8.0 oz Cara-Pils
8.0 oz Caramel/Crystal Malt

*mash at 65C

1.0 oz Centennial 60 min 33 IBU
0.5 oz Centennial (15 min) 8.2 IBU
0.5 oz Amarillo (15 min) 7.1 IBU
0.5 oz Centennial (5 min) 3.1 IBU
0.5 oz Amarillo (5min) 2.9 IBU
1.00 oz Centennial (1 min) 1.4 IBU
1.0 oz Amarillo for (1 min) 1.2 IBU

dry hop 0.5 oz each amarillo and Centennial in secondary.

Use US-05 yeast

I hope this will be very tasty. I'm teaching my friends to brew this coming weekend so I hope they will like it.

I have found that amarillo has a very smooth bitterness to it. Not so much of a bite. I thoroughly enjoy this quality. Maybe .5 oz centennial and .5 oz Amarillo at 60 mins.

I think your recipe looks good. I've done that combination before.

I just split a purchase of a pound of Amarillo with a friend of mine and I'm planning an IPA using the 8 ounces of Amarillo exclusively.

My favorite pale ale recipe uses Simcoe, Amarillo, and Centennial. It's always a crowd pleaser.

The numbers came out in the actual brew more like:

OG-1.057

10 lbs Pale Malt (2 Row)
2 lbs Vienna Malt
8.0 oz Cara-Pils
8.0 oz Caramel/Crystal Malt

*mash at 65C

1.0 oz Centennial 60 min 33 IBU
0.5 oz Centennial (15 min) 8.2 IBU
0.5 oz Amarillo (15 min) 7.1 IBU
0.5 oz Centennial (5 min) 3.1 IBU
0.5 oz Amarillo (5min) 2.9 IBU
1.00 oz Centennial (1 min) 1.4 IBU
1.0 oz Amarillo for (1 min) 1.2 IBU

dry hop 0.5 oz each amarillo and Centennial in secondary.


Despite the near self-destruction of my cooler mash tun, the wort turned out ok and I think this'll be a tasty beer.

Can you dry hop with Simcoe?? I've never tried that hop before but I heard it is quite good. Maybe I can throw some in with the dry hop?
