I recipe would be as follows:
2 lb amber LME
1 lb pale DME
0.5 oz Cascade at 30 min
1.5 oz Cascade dry hop in secondary for last week before bottling
The Coopers IPA has alcohol content of roughly 4.5%, with the additions this IPA should be 7.67% ABV, which is more suitable to compliment the hoppiness of an IPA. The Cascade will add bitterness in the boil and bit more aroma in the dry hopping.
How does this look? Is Cascade the right choice and is dry hopping a good idea or will it overpower the bitterness? I've read dry hopping imparts flavors on the beer, but not as much bitterness.
All tips would be helpful, thanks
