Hop Questions
« on: March 19, 2009, 06:29:20 PM »
I am putting together a recipe for an IPA.  Here is my hop schedule.
1 oz Cascade 60 min
1 oz Fuggle 45 min
1 oz Nugget 30 min
1 oz Warrior 5 min

Plus dry hopping with 1 oz of cascade and 1 oz of fuggle @ 7 days.

Does this sound like too much?
Should I reverse the order to put the higher AA hops in the beginning?
Will it be too hoppy? Overpowering?
I'd appreciate any suggestions.

What is the grain bill or recipe so we can get the Bitterness Ratio. It does not look like to much to me, but the Grain bill will help.

This being the BeerSmith forum --- you should download a demo version and punch the recipe in. The IBU calc will tell you what you need to know
