Recipe Type: All Grain   
Yeast: US-05/WLP001   
Yeast Starter: If needed   
Batch Size (Gallons): 9.25   
Original Gravity: 1.040   
Final Gravity: 1.008   
IBU: 36.6   
Boiling Time (Minutes): 60   
Color: 7.8   
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 7-10   
Additional Fermentation: Cold crash   
Tasting Notes: Sweet, wonderful blend of hops, VERY sessionable for Summer   

Malt Pounds %
American 2-row 2.5 16.2%
Pale Ale Malt 7.5 48.7%
American Vienna 2.8 18.2%
American Crystal 40 1.6 10.4%
Oats (flaked) 1 6.5%

Nugget 0.75 FWH
Cascade Pellet 0.50 20
Nugget 0.50 20
Cascade Pellet 0.50 10
Nugget 0.50 10
Cascade Pellet 0.50 5
Nugget 0.50 5
Cascade Pellet 0.25 0
Nugget 0.25 0

Mashed at 152 for 90 minutes. Can go shorter or longer, just adjust temp up or down accordingly. Pitched slurry of US-05 top-cropped from previous batch. Estimated 2b cells/ML from yeast, freshly cropped just a week or two prior to brew-day.

Finished within a week, cold-crashed 2 days, kegged and carbed over 48 hour period. Beer is cloudy (rushed the cold-crash and US-05 doesn't flocc well) but it's damn good. You can use a better clearing yeast and extend the cold-crash for clearer beer.

Should be noted I dry-hop in keg, not fermenter, for freshest hop aroma.

I'm thinking of omitting the 0 minute hops and just doing the dry-hopping. I wonder if the whirlpool additions really add much aroma anyway...

I would keep the 0 min addition, this works better for me than just 5-10 min additions. I'm gonna try your Nugget/Cascade combo - sounds great!

The beer is good, but I DID also dry-hop. I just don't want to waste hops if they're not contributing much.

Agreed with Tap. I've done a few different options and find that a 0 min addition really adds to aroma and there's some flavour in it too
I tried a 5 min addition last time and well the Aroma just isn't quite punching through.

The last few beers I've brewed were completely different beers with a keg dry-hop. It almost didn't matter what they tasted like out of the fermenter in terms of hop flavor/aroma. They changed (for the better) with keg hops.

Going to brew an 18g batch of this (9g, double grav, double IBU, topped off) in the near future. It's so reliably good I might make it my house beer.
