Hi,

We are looking to experiment with our next BIAB brew and need advice on a recipe.

We want to use our left over hops from previous brew & generally brew pale ales & IPAs with our 25L BIAB setup.

We have the following left over hops:

60g - Cascade
30g - Magnum
30g - El Dorado
25g - Galaxy

Can anyone recommend a good recipe to brew? And also what types of grain we will need to buy?

Cheers.

Ok thanks Coodgee, I imagine this would be quite light in colour with a florally taste? Any dry hops to add?

Yes quite light in colour. If you want it a bit more golden and malty you could use some Munich malt or use a medium or dark crystal. The hop flavor will be citrus and passion fruit. If you want to get some more hops you could dry hop for sure. As it is, it will have some aroma but mostly a fruity flavor. Would be quite nice to dry hop with 50 to 120 grams of galaxy or citra if you want a really fruity aroma.

I recommend looking through the recipes on this site. You can substitute the recipe hops for what you have on hand. Magnum is a bittering hop and plenty of recipes use it. Cascade is great as a flavor addition and so are the other two plus those are great for aroma so steeping and dry hopping work well.
