Hey guys. So I got an order in for Bru-1 hops and some Citra.

I'm gonna do a Hazy IPA (no wheat) with mainly Voyager Veloria malt, maybe some oats (but probably not), and some gladiator.

Very simple grain bill, I want the hops to shine.

My problem is I haven't used Bru-1 before. I feel like they are similar to Galaxy with the potential of adding a nice candied pineapple aroma / taste.

So, I'm going all whirlpool and dry hops.

What ratios would you use with Citra and maybe even Galaxy?

I'm thinking 50:40:25 C / G / B1 for whirlpool and then same again for a dry hop once I hit 1.020 SG.

Pairing with London Ale III

Anyone used Bru-1? I haven't found many recipes and the ones I did were either SMaSH or single hop. Most agreed it needs to blend and doesn't stand up well on its own

i'd go about 3-2-1. and i know you like a big ipea, so maybe,
12 pellets bru-1, 8 pellets citra and 4 of galaxy in the boil, 3 pellets citra in the whirlpool, and a bru-1 pellet for insurance (with appropriate sock) on the dry.

I will have you know I currently have a Czech Pils down, and a Robust Porter up next :D

I was like "wtf? 20g aroma / flavour addition? It's missing an 0"
