i'm going to be brewing a pale ale of some sort later on today, and i would like some input on a hop schedule. i have the following that i'm clearing out of the freezer:
1 oz whole leaf williamette
.5 oz pellet chinook
on top of that i have two unopened ounces of simcoe pellets that i will most likely use.
i'm trying to decide what to use for bittering, and where i will get the best utilization out of the williamette, being whole leaf. i'm more focused on hop flavor than bitterness, so i plan on doing additions at FW, 20, 15, 5, FO.
grain bill is
.75# crystal 40
