I'd like to make an IPA with these 2 hops (I'll be bottle conditioning BTW). Looking for around 6% ABV with Gladfield American Ale, Munich, and Toffee malt.

Anyone have any suggestions for the hop schedule? Normally I use equal parts in 10 min, whirlpool, and dry hop additions but that will probably be a bit too bitter. I've never used these hops before. Or any other NZ hops I should add?

To make it more interesting should I try using Coopers commercial ale yeast (cultivated from bottles) instead of M44 or US-05?

I usually do 60 minute bittering hops (magnum lately). Then I'll take 200g and do ~ 30g at 10 minutes, 50g whirlpool, 120g dry hop. For a bigger IPA maybe spread another 100g over the whirlpool and dryhop.

Nectaron sounds interesting. Might pick up some.

That hop schedule sounds good! I'll do that.

I've also decided to use that delicious Coopers yeast too. Should be an interesting combo.
