I'm thinking of brewing it up for a few Christmas parties - curious how it came out. Anyone try it?

I haven't tried it, but can't be too bad if its from Mitch Steele. I love the hop bursting theory.

I brewed it two weeks ago. Almost identical except I changed the sterling hops to cascade.

I tried the hydro sample last weekend and it was fantastic. A really nice orange colour too. I am going to dry hop in the keg next week so ill keep you posted.

I haven't tried the recipe, but in general I love beers that I've done with that hopping method.

Just tapped this beer an it is amazing. My best brew yet. I dry hopped with 1oz each of Centennial, Cascade and citra.

A really smooth bitterness and tons of citrus/tropical aroma. I can recommend it!

Sure!

10lbs 8 oz pale ale malt
12oz C40
8oz Cara pils
8 oz Munich

0.3oz Magnum FWH

1.5oz Centennial, 1.5oz Amarillo @ 15 mins

0.8oz each Simcoe/Centennial/Citra/Amarillo/Cascade, whirlpool for 20 mins before cooling.

0.8oz each Cascade/Centennial/Citra/Amarillo/Simcoe dry hop in keg.

2 litre starter of 1056.

This is slightly modified from the recipe in Zymurgy by Mitch Steele.
He uses C20 instead of C40 and no carapils. He also uses Sterling hops instead
of Cascade. Apart from that is it pretty much the same.

Highly recommended!

I am getting ready to brew an Imperial Red ale and will be using the hop bursting method. I have been doing quite a bit of reading on this since reading the above mentioned article in Zymurgy and have seen a few places mention a 30 min addition but most don't use 30 and seem to focus on 20 min or less. I am curious what a 30 min addition would or would not do. I would also like some feedback on my grain bill but don't have that with me so my hop bursting idea will have to do:

FWH Simcoe .25oz
60 min. boil
1oz Galaxy 30 min
1oz Galaxy 15 min
.75oz Simcoe 15 min
.75oz Centennial 15 min
.75oz of either Green Bullet, Motueka, Riwaka, or El Dorado (depends on availability)
.75oz Galaxy knockout
.5oz Simcoe knockout
.5oz Centennial knockout
.5oz Green Bullet or ... as above
1.25oz Galaxy DH
.75oz Simcoe DH
.75 Centennial DH
.75oz Green Bullet or...as above

I may do my dry hopping in one charge but may also split those numbers in half and do 2 additions for 3-4 days each then cold crash before bottling. Thoughts? In doing my research, these hops should play nicely with each other... I hope.

With the 20 minute whirlpool your 30 minute addition will be more like a regular 40+ minute hop addition. If you go this route be careful to reduce or eliminate the FWH to compensate or you will have an overly bitter result. The hop bursting is to maximize flavor and aroma (while contributing bittering) so i would focus on 15 minutes and under if it were me.

BTW - The NZ hops seem to be hot right now. I find them interesting but I'm note sure I like how they work with simcoe and centennial. Feel free to ignore my taste preferences.
