You might consider mixing all of the hops together and using the mixture for each hops addition. If you want a very complex hops flavor and aroma, you might go for a schedule something like:Orpheus said:Oops,
I forgot to add I have some Northern Brewer as well.
I'm wondering, should I bitter with the NB, Summit, and Simcoe because of their higher bitterness? Should I add them all at 60 for bittering? Or will 3 oz of 1 each of the three cause my cheeks to turn inside out.
I am definitely going for a much hoppier and complex hop flavoring.
I'll definitely be dryhopping, probably with the Cascade and Centennial, as I've had great results with this combo. twice.
