not much experience creating recipes yet, so i figured i would post this up for review to get some feedback. we have multiple ipa's in the pipeline, but not much for low abv hoppier beers, so a nice sessionable apa with a different hop twist sounded refreshing. hoping to pick up some tropical fruit with this hop combo, i guess we shall find out soon enough.

estimated efficiency 73%
estimated og 1.045
estimated fg 1.010
estimated ibu 35.2
estimated srm 5.4
estimated abv 4.6%

8lbs 2 row 86.7%
8oz munich 5.4%
6oz crystal 40 4%
6oz carapils 4%

.4oz magnum 60 minutes 18.8 ibus
.25oz galaxy 15 minutes 6.3 ibus
.25oz rakau 15 minutes 5.5 ibus
.25oz galaxy 10 minutes 2.5 ibus
.25oz rakau 10 minutes 2.2 ibus

.5oz galaxy dry hop
.5oz rakau dry hop

safale us-05 dry yeast

This recipe looks great. I especially appreciate that you used magnum for the 60 mon addition and did not waste the galaxy and rakau.

Recipe looks good - only thing I would be weary about is that with such a low OG you have it finishing at 1.009 - I would recommend shooting for a higher FG - 1.012-1.013 or else this beer could come off quite watery and thin.

hmm, maybe i will up the mash temp to 153-154, that should bring it up to 1.010-1.011. hard to tell what the 05 will do, sometimes its a beast and sometimes its around 70%aa.
