---------------------------------------------------------------------- Date: Fri, 24 Feb 2012 15:31:30 -0600 From: Jeff Barabas <jdbarabas at gmail.com> Subject: How much is too much for a partial mash pale ale/ipa? I was wondering if you could post my question to your email list! I just got into the brewing game a bit ago(only one batch completed). I want to brew a pale ale/IPA hybrid, meaning basically a good malt presence with a decent flavoring of hops. I was trying to analyze the average amount of hops each kit was using for this type of variety in the couple of brewing books I have, but they all seem to be a bit different. I know this is because of the different varieties of hops, and at what point you add them to the boil, which I think I have a good handle on. I am using cascade as a base for flavor and adding Amarillo about halfway through for bittering and some good citrus flavors. I was thinking about adding some more cascade in the bittering stage to accompany the Amarillo, or as an aroma hop to go with the other hops I choose to go in last. If you add these up, it comes out to 4 oz of hops for a 5 gallon partial mash IPA. Is this too much, or am I about right in assuming this will turn out to be that pale ale/IPA mix that I'm aiming for? Thanks HBD!! Jeff Barabas (New Subscriber) Return to table of contents
