I've been meaning to do an all Amarillo Beer for a while, I think the aroma is great. So following the hopping schedule for my Centennial IPA I decided to brew this. I would like to try making a 10 minute IPA in the future, but for now I'll stick with the basic IPA recipe.
2.8Kg Sorghum Syrup @ 60 minutes
400g Raw Sugar @ 60 minutes
4oz Tapioca Based Maltodextrine @ 60 minutes
15g Amarillo Hops @ 60 minutes
15g Amarillo Hops @ 45 minutes
15g Amarillo Hops @ 30 minutes
15g Amarillo Hops @ 15 minutes
1 x whirlfloc tablet @ 15 minutes
30g Amarillo Hops @ 0 minutes (I wanted heaps of aroma)
1 teaspoon of yeast nutrient @ 0 minutes
*** Cold crash ***
2 packets of Fermentis US-05 American Ale Yeast
Filled the fermenter to 21.5L
Original Gravity was 1047
Edit: After talking with Doc from Doctors Orders Brewing, I doubt I'd do a hop burst / 10 minute IPA in the future. As he said it really misses that bittering component. Which I really think makes an IPA. Might be good for a Pale Ale though.
Had a preview sample of this beer from the fermenter. This is looking like one of my best so far, it tastes fantastic. I'm getting orange and stonefruit flavours through. Can't wait till it's ready to drink.
