    Has anybody tried a big whirlpool addition of Styrians into an English IPA?
    How hard can you go before the marmalade takes over?

    Did you try this? I have one coming up where I will be adding flame out Styrian.

    Yes, I did. I used (from memory):

    FWH 50g
    10 30g
    0 20g
    Dry Hop 20g

    Initially it was pretty overwhelming but settled down and now towards the end of the keg (of course) it's coming out nicely.
    That said, I think I wouldn't bother with the dry hop next time and maybe back off a tad on the whirlpool.
    Depends on your taste buds really.
    Previously I've made Belgian pales with 10-15g in the whirlpool and they have finished with a hint of marmalade that balanced the yeast (Ardennes) nicely.

    I'm don't do much dry hopping at all now so will rely on flameout.
