i've never had the chance to brew with amarillo hops, and was able to get 4oz at my LHBS. so i'm devising this recipe as a low alc beer as a yeast cake to dump a barleywine onto (multitasking )

8lbs 2row
2lbs munich
.5lbs 40l-60l (have some in the garage, can't recall which though)

OG 1.051ish

now since i was only able to obtain 4oz, this is what i'm planning

1oz simcoe @ 60
.5oz amarillo @ 15
.5oz amarillo @ 10
.5oz amarillo @ 5
.5oz amarillo @ 0
2oz amarillo @ DH 2 weeks

55ish IBUs

1056 Wyeast with a small starter
then 2-3 weeks later, make the barleywine and dump'er ontop..

how does that sound to get the full flavor of amarillo out? (only have 4oz or i'd bitter with it too)

Sounds Great! Amarillo is a great hop, resiny citrus aroma. Simcoe is similar to amarill as well, sound like a nice hoppy beer

Dry hopping for two weeks may be to long. Might start tasting grassy

i'd consider doing first wort hopping with the simcoe

they 2 go so well together and you won't get much flavor from the 60min bittering addition.

if you are trying to just get the flavor of amarillo then disregard

Beer is in the keg from the last batch from a month ago.
Yeast starter is clackering away on the stir plate... lets see how this rolls!

looks like a very solid recipe. Amarillo hops are very enjoyable, I pick up at least a few ounce every time I see them in stock. . . I have a hop problem though. Wouldn't worry about 152 instead of 153. . .

Out of curiosity, Hop Union hops?

Not sure, my lhbs buys in massive bulk and packages their own. So its possible! Lol very smooth brew day though, wort tasted amazing and more fragrant then I was expecting. I'm happy!
