I haven't brewed in a couple months and I'm itching to get going again. After adding Amarillo to my brown ale I have found a new favorite hop. I was thinking of featuring it in a pale ale that will use Maris Otter malt only. It will be fairly light colored and may not have a big malt back bone but I want this beer to feature the Amarillo hops. I would like to mash in the 152 to 154 degree range so it will be fairly fermentable and use a good neutral yeast like 1056.
Thoughts? Ideas?

This is something I've been rolling around in my head for quite a while. I ended up doing MO & EKG instead but it was a tough choice. I think MO & Amarillo would end up being a great beer. Maybe think about going with Wyeast 1272 or WLP051 just to get a little more complexity out of it. Just a thought. 1056 would probably do just fine.

I likey.

I'd sure want to dry hop...but that's just me.

Just out of habit, I'd prolly toss in 1/2 pound of #10 or cara.

I'm actually thinking about dry hopping but I haven't decided yet. The carapils might not be a bad idea for added body. I'd have to change the name though!!!

Maybe if you toast a pound of the MO for 30 minutes at 350 degrees. Then you get some biscuity complexity, but still stick with a single malt.

Now I like that idea! I may add an extra pound.

I might brew this too. I've been yammering about how my next batch should be 2-Row + Amarillo (we kicked the keg of 2-Row + Hersbrucker last night, after only 8 days!).

+1 on BM's home-toasted idea too.

Rich, I brew this all the time. In fact, most of what I brew is some variation on an amarillo pale ale. I try to brew what I like, and it's tough for me to get away from Amarillo. I might throw in some carapils if you had some sitting around, otherwise, the MO is great all by itself.

The house IPA at the brewpub I work at is made with 100% Amarillos and 100% Maris Otter. It is delicious and refreshing.
