If you also have some Amarillo then definitely give this one a shot.

I like the idea of FWH but what's the best way to do this if you're doing a BIAB? I assume, just pull the bag and throw them in while the bag is draining? Then start the boil?

Don't do BIAB but assume what you explain makes sense. Add the hops when you are finished with the mash and getting the wort into the kettle.

Obtain an equal amount of amarillo and do 50:50 all late addition pale ale/ipa to your personal ibu taste. Together these hops have an awsome flavor. All late addition gives an amazing taste and a nice smooth bitterness. I push 60 ibus of a+s in a pale ale and the bcm croud to the beer snob croud loves it. Just a great combo.

I BIAB and that is correct a mondo! Don't omit your 60 min addition thinking it will be too bitter, add it in addition to your FWH. FWH is sexy, I'm finding it is smooth from start to finish, not just upon first sip.

Just finished this today. Almost 84% efficiency. I surprised myself. SG was 1.074 with a projected at 1.076.....again, not shabby at all.
I now wish I would have done 5 gallons of this instead of 2 1/2 but I'll get to that another time.
Here's the final recipe I used....I opted to stick with O5 yeast for now but when I do a larger batch, would likely use 1056.

if you have a whole foods nearby, check there - they stock brewing materials including hard to find yeasts and hops (might be why they're hard to find with national markets snapping them up)...

one of my next beers is an all simcoe pale ale. thinking of making it a smash with MO.

This is a FANTASTIC beer. One of the best-received beers I've made.

Wait. You're not talking about beer, right?
You're talking about beer. That could have been a whole lot more fun.
