Seeking expert advice
My previous brew was the following:
3.3 lbs light LME, 3.3 lbs amber LME (late addition), boil volume 1.6 Gal, total volume 5 gal. Single hop Styrian Goldings 3.2 %: 2.1 [email protected]
min, 0.7 @15 min and 0.7 @ 5 min. Fermentation @ 63 F for two weeks with Nottingham. Brew turned out great!
I have now bought the following (for two 5-gal batches):
4 times 3.3 lbs light LME, 2 x Nottingham yeast, 3.53 oz Citra, 2 x 3.53 oz Cascade (all pellets).
Question is what hop schedule to go for? I would like some variation between the two batches. I liked the bitterness level in my previous brew, but could have been quite a lot more bitter. I do not like a too fruity taste. I've read that Citra may not be that suitable as bittering hops.
So - what do you experts think?
Thanks in advance!
