Default New recipe. IPA - Got some Simcoe

Hi

I've got 100grams of simcoe and deciding what to do with it. I can't get amarillo or citra, would have liked to use them.

Thinking of doing something like this:

American IPA

Batch Size 23.00 l

Ingredients

5.000 kg Pale Malt (SA) (2.0 SRM) Grain 1 64.9 %
0.800 kg Cara-Pils/Dextrine (2.0 SRM) Grain 2 10.4 %
0.700 kg Munich Malt (9.0 SRM) Grain 3 9.1 %
0.700 kg Vienna Malt (3.5 SRM) Grain 4 9.1 %
0.500 kg Caramunich III (Weyermann) (71.0 SRM) Grain 5 6.5 %
23.00 g Chinook [13.00 %] - Boil 60.0 min Hop 6 31.5 IBUs
20.00 g Cascade [6.50 %] - Boil 30.0 min Hop 7 10.5 IBUs
15.00 g Cascade [6.50 %] - Boil 15.0 min Hop 8 5.1 IBUs
15.00 g Simcoe [13.00 %] - Boil 15.0 min Hop 9 10.2 IBUs
30.00 g Simcoe [13.00 %] - Boil 5.0 min Hop 10 8.2 IBUs
25.00 g Simcoe [13.00 %] - Boil 0.0 min Hop 11 0.0 IBUs
1.0 pkg Safale American (DCL/Fermentis #US-05) [50.28 ml] Yeast 12 -
30.00 g Simcoe [13.00 %] - Dry Hop 7.0 Days Hop 13 0.0 IBUs
15.00 g Cascade [6.50 %] - Dry Hop 7.0 Days Hop 14 0.0 IBUs

Beer Profile

Est Original Gravity: 1.061 SG
Est Final Gravity: 1.013 SG
Estimated Alcohol by Vol: 6.4 %
Bitterness: 65.6 IBUs
Est Color: 11.8 SRM


Any thoughts?

I'm not very good with "grams" and kgs, but I'd cut the carapils. With the caramunich, you don't need it plus it's 10% of the grainbill.

I'd move the 30 minute cascade addition to later in the boil- to 5 minutes or flame out, to blend with the simcoe, and simply increase the chinook for bittering to replace the IBUs given by the cascade.

thanks Yooper..!

I based the grain bill on the Sacred Summit Pale Ale which i really enjoyed. I used 2.3% caramunich III for that one. I thought that it could be a little sweeter though. That's why I upped the Caramunich III to 6.5%

From my (limited) understanding, i thought that the Cara Pils doesn't contribute to sweetness, but only to head retention and body... That's why i included the 10%.

I thought it wouldn't contribute to the sweetness added by the Cara Munich - i therefore only included it for the head retention and body...

Can anyone clear that up?

The other thing, I've used Cascade quite a lot, so i know what that tastes like.

I added the 30min addition thinking that it would help provide a little more of a smoother bitterness.

I wanted the simcoe to stand out more - I've never used it before.

Simcoe is nearly 3 times the price of Cascade here in South Africa...!

Well, yes, I agree. Except the first line of his post is "I can't get amarillo".

I've heard that, but impossible to get it here.

These are pretty much the only American style hops i can get:

Actually.... I just found a local supplier who has some Amarillo

They have previously ALWAYS been out of stock.

Busy placing an order!

Oh, amarillo and simcoe together are awesome- definitely my favorite combination of hops.
