Hello all!

For my day off today I decided to go to my LBHS and do a bit of shopping for a MLK day brew session.

Picked up

3.3 Pilsen Light LME
3.3 Munich Extract

2 oz Chinook
2 oz Simcoe
2 oz Fuggle.

WLP011 European Ale Yeast

I'm not entirely sure on what my hop schedule should be like. I'm still new to brewing, and have been using kits and this is the first time going out on my own so to speak.

And advice?

Check out a site like brewersfriend where you can build a recipe. It'll help you build a recipe and formulate things like IBUs/Gravities.

I have all my recipes on brewers friend and have had it since I started brewing(Last march) Simpler and easier to learn/use for the new brewer than Beersmith IMO.

Plus you can check out all the other recipes on there to get an idea of what other people are doing.
