Hi all,

I'm planning a pale ale brew next week. I have the following ingredients and am using a 35 l robobrew.
About 20kg Maris otter
25g citra
100g Golding's
80g brewers gold
20g challenger
10g Amarillo
80g Apollo
2x packs s-04

If I need to get any other ingredients I can go to the lhbs.
Any suggestions will be very welcome.

TIA

You could do a number of things with those. I think you'd better start smoking the Apollo. 🤣

An all Apollo pale is good though, if you like dankness.

All Goldings is great. Same with Brewer's Gold.

Citra and Amarillo is a favourite combination of mine but you're a bit short, enough for late hopping in a less in your face pale though.

Goldings and Citra could work great. I often combine English and American hops.

If was going to add a malt it would be caramalt or light crystal. Maybe some wheat too. I'm not a fan of s04 in English pales, I think it works better with US hops, perversely perhaps. The hops disguise the yeast flavour that I don't like much.

.23kg pale wheat

14.2g Summit@60
14.2g Citra@15
14.2g Citra@5
14.2g Citra@0
14.2g Citra dry hop
1 packet US-05 yeast

Good point I thought he had a 100g Even with the Amarillo added he might struggle.

Is it worth using the Apollo as bittering hop and then adding brewers gold or Golding's as later additions or is that a poor combination?

Apollo is very pungent and Goldings very delicate, so there's a danger of overwhelming the Goldings. Brewers Gold would cope better. But if you don't overdo the bitterness the Goldings could work.

So, 15g Apollo at 60 mins, the Amarillo at 10 mins and the citra at flameout. Does that sound good? The grain bill will be 4.5kg MO and 450g crystal that I found in my beer shed.
