Yes, I just double checked the recipe. The hops are right. Is there something in particular that made you wonder about it?

Ya, not a whole lot of late hops in this recipe just enough to give just a little bit of citrus in the aroma and brighten up the flavor. The 9 g of Magnum should give about 19 IBU, which is what I was aiming for. I listed the hops below in ounces also.

Hops:
9 g (0.32 oz) Yakima Magnum (14.0% AA); first wort hops
8 g (0.28 oz) Centennial (8.8% AA); 10 min.
21 g (0.74 oz) Centennial (8.8% AA); 0 min.

newbie here too, looks like a good summer recipe for my first AG batch.. most of it look self explanatory, but just a couple questions.. i plan on ordering my ingredients from austinhomebrew and they have all the grains fine, though they don't have that same first hops, they have magnum pellets that are 13.5%AA, would they do? the cenetenniels there are 10.3%AA, would that change the taste much? also, what is the order for the hops.. the magnums go in first thing? then what? thanks for your help, still learning how to read these things ;-)

Ya, I brewed another batch recently and I'm really enjoying it in the warm weather!

The 13.5% AA Magnum will work fine. You can adjust for the different AA% to get the same calculated IBUs by factoring in the ratio of the AA%:

(14.0/13.5) x 9g = 9.3g

So you would use 9.3 g of the 13.5% Magnum to get the same bitterness as the 14.0% Magnum i used. But practically speaking, this difference is so small and my scale only has a 1 g resolution, so you should be fine just measuring out 9 grams with the 13.5% Magnum. Yes, the Magnum go in first. The Magnum were First Wort Hops, which means I added them to the kettle when I started collecting my first runnings after the mash.

Your 10.3% Centennials will work just fine in the same amounts. Since they are added at the last 10 minutes and at the end of the boil they will not add much bitterness. These are for flavor and aroma so you should use the same amount (per 6 gallon batch).

Hope this helps!

I've wondered about centennial in a wheat beer (brewed one yesterday and barely restrained myself from dropping a 1/2 oz in a flameout) so it's great to hear that you had such a good result with it!

ok, so i get most of it now.. just a couple more Qs.. looks like a great summer beer..

do you put the magnum hops in at the very beginning of the boil? then 8g of centennial 10 min into the boil? then what does the 0min ones mean?

how much water (or how much per lb of grain) do you use for your mash?
