I'm just brewing a pretty basic APA.

Going to hop it with cascade & Citra.

Just following Beersmith.

Can't go wrong with cascade and citra. I love the citrusy hops. I brewed an APA a couple weeks ago with Centennial, Cascade and Mt. Hood. It's The Bitter End recipe from Two Brothers Brewing. Interesting grain bill. And with wyeast 1332, it's awesome.

Hope it turns out. Welcome!

By the way this is only a 3 gal batch. That's why only 7.5 lbs of grain

Yep, lots of water. I brew 4gal. batches. At the start of the boil I have 5.5 gal. You need that much to get all the sugar off the grain.

Good Luck to all of you!
