So my brother asked me to make him a recipe for an American Pale Ale. He wants to use the one ounce of Simcoe he was able to score from his local shop. He is well stocked with other typical pale ale hops: cascade, centennial (only one ounce,) magnum, willamette, chinook, northern brewer.
I am drinking a pretty good pale ale that is my attempt at a session IPA. Should I just set him up with the same recipe? or can y'all give a better suggestion. This is the recipe as I brewed it.
