Default AHS Texas Red...

Anyone tried this recipe? I'm about to brew it but I'm wondering about the amount of bittering hops the recipe calls for. I chose this beer b/c I want a malty beer without a lot of hop bitterness. It calls for 2oz. of Crystal (4.3% AA) which seems like a lot. Thoughts?

I'm making this for a group of work friends and don't want to ruin their perception of homebrew by serving them an overly-hoppy beer.

I wish AHS included a profile of the beer in their recipe, eg. IBU, SRM.

It depends on the OG, but two ounces of a 4.3% AAU hop shouldn't be bitter. If the OG is 1.050, the IBUs would be about 29-30. If you tell us the recipe, we could look at it and tell you how bitter or hoppy it will be.

it can also depend on the hop schedule. is it all 2oz for 60 or is it 1 oz for 60 and the rest added later?

Yeah, the OG is about 1.055. My boil volume will be about 3 gallons and this will also contribute to less hop utilization.

No, that's only the bittering hops (60 min).

for an 1.055 OG beer that'll be malty. since you're doing a 3g boil, like you said that'll lower the IBU a bit as well. you be in the 28-30 IBU range most likely (maybe lower)... not bitter at all

I agree- and with 1.5 pounds of crystal to balance the bitterness, it'll be balanced well.

i did it about a year ago, it was pretty good. Not overly hoppy not overly malty. Good balance and drinks easily. Definitely has the "red" look to it in the glass.
