Has anyone tried this with Simcoe hops? I want to compare Amarillo to another hop? I am trying to do this same recipe exactly with another style of hops....any suggestions?

I love Simcoe but it can be a little more "potent" than Amarillo - you might want to tone down the amount of the additions a bit....or just do a straight substitution to really show off the difference b/n the two

my "house" ipa grainbill is very similar to this. 2 row, 8 oz. c-50/60, and 4 oz melanoidin, SG 1.060. i did the last batch with amarillo and nelson sauvin hops and it came out AMAZING.

cascade, nelson sauvin, sorachi ace, centennial. using the same malt base with different hops is a great way to learn which hops you like best.

OH MY GOD! !! I just pored my first glass of this and man it is f***king good. Still a little young but awesome. It's supposed to be for super bowl. I hope it's going to last. Lol. Thought I racked it cleanly but guess not cause I have little bits of particals in my glass. Any suggestions on how to improve on this? Anyways go and brew this it's great. It'll always be on tap in my rator! Here's my recipe on this :

9.25 lbs light lme
.5 lbs crystal 40

1.5 oz. Amarillo. 60 min
1oz Amarillo. 30 min
1 oz Amarillo. 5 min
.5 oz Amarillo. Flame out (10 min)
2 oz Amarillo. Dry hop 7 days

Wyeast 1056

Primary fermentor 3 weeks and dry hopped last 7 days of fermentation.
Og. 1.057
Og. 1.014
ABC 5.7%

This turned out a little dry but maybe with 2 more weeks in keg that will get better. If not I'll probably bump up to 10 lbs light lme. Thanks a million for the recipe. It's great.

Going to be brewing this beer in the coming weeks.

I think I am going to go with Wyeast 1272, as I have some washed yeast for this.

Cant wait!

Brewed a version of this back at the start of January. Had to use Cascade as Amarillo is out at my LHBS and is not expected back until Fall of 2012 or later. So used Cascade. Kegged it after about 2.5 weeks and pulled a pint on Saturday. I'd say this was the best beer I've brewed to date. Followed the OP's recipe to get a base. 4oz of hops was good for overall flavor and bitterness. Only change I'll do next time is dry hopping for a bit more aroma. Other than that....solid brew and highly recommended! I know this will stay in my pipeline. I'll add a picture when I get home because it's a beautiful almost red and super clear. I wish I had a pint right now actually

so here we go, back from the dead on this thread. I am brewing a 2.5 gallon batch of this as I type. I adapted it to a smaller boil and I am going to be continously hopping for half the boil. Why a 2.5 gallon batch? Weeellllllll, my wife and I are going to be moving in the near future and she gave me a valentines day present in the form of money to brew one last 5 gallon batch of beer. (which I am going to use on Yoopers dogfish head 60 min clone) so now I am doing 2.5 gallons so I am not using up my 5 gallon privlidge and I am also currently p 90 xing it so I can t really consume too much beer that really sucks. I couldn't believe I found Amarillo hops at my LBHS because they never seem to have any or at least not for the last 2 years.

My recipe is as follows:

3 lbs 6oz's of light DME
.25lbs Briess caramel 60

.5 oz's Amarillo 10.3 % @ 30mins

Continous hop 1.5 oz of Amarillo 10.3% from 15mins until 0

I am using a jar of washed S-04 yeast

We shall see how this comes out, I am estimating an original gravity of 1.061 and IBU's @ 56.89
