I know someone else mentioned FWH as a replacement for 20 minute hops- I don't agree. My feeling is that FWH provides slightly more bitterness than a 60 minute addition. So, if you're happy with the amount of bitterness you'll be getting with 1 ounce at 60 minutes (basically), then that's fine.

I do a recipe with all Amarillo's I call Triple Threat.(Three malts @3lbs each, easy to remember)

3# 2-row
3# Vienna
3# Munich
.5# Crystal 10L
.5# Carapils

.5 oz(9.3AA) Amarillo @ 60
3 oz (9.3AA) Amarillo @ 15

I use Notty or US-05, whichever I have on hand. Mash at 152F/60mTT
Sometimes I sparge with half gallon less water and boil for 90 min to make a 4 gal batch, and dryhop with 2 oz Amarillo if the mood strikes me for a little stronger ale

It's kind of "weird" to me to have 1.5 ounces at 20 minutes and have no aroma additions at least. That's fine if that's what you want, but I'd probably change it up. You could do an ounce at 20, an ounce at 5 (or even 0) and then an ounce for dryhopping. I wouldn't leave out the late addition and use that much for flavor.

Anyway, amarillo hops are great so I'm sure it'll be drinkable anyway.

Sorry to be so nitpicky! I just LOVE having one addition at 5 minutes or less. IMHO, it's needed in a beer with that much bittering and flavor. (If you don't like it, though- please don't blame me! )

Brewed this yesterday. Smelled and looked wonderful but my OG came out a little high (around 1.060 for 5.5 gallons) The barley crusher is crazy and puts my efficiency in the 90% range.

I just hope its hoppy enough, hopefully the dry hops give it an extra kick.

Might do another vienna smash with a higher alpha hop, I just love the impression I was getting from the vienna as a base grain. Might add a pound of rye also.

Just tasted a hydrometer sample 7 days after brewing. Gravity is at about 1.012 and the flavor is amazing. Can't wait to see how this turns out after dry hopping and sitting in the keg for a bit.
