1lb Crystal 40
I like hoppy beers so the more the better for hops. Here is my hop leftover:
2 oz EK Goldings
Thoughts? I also have some Crystal 80 if anyone thinks I should be adding that in there.
Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
If it were me, indefinitely wouldn't use 2 while pounds of Crystal malt, especially for a hoppy ale; maybe split them down the middle, or just use all the C20. I'd use the Columbus for bittering to about 30 IBU, an ounce of EKG at 25, then staggered additions of Centennial, Simcoe, and Amarillo from 15 to flameout. Cheers!!
