Brewer's Notes

20 litre recipe because with 2 x 1.5kg cans of LME it'll get you spot on 5% abv after bottle conditioning. If you're using bulk extract like me, add another 200gm of light LME for every litre extra you'd like to make, and adjust hops up a little too (1gm of warrior @ 60 for every extra litre). Dry hop additions won't change much, you choose.

I have switched out the Chinook, Goldings/East Kent 60 min hop additions for Warrior, 'coz I think it makes a lot more sense to use half as many hops for the same IBU number when it comes to bittering. It shouldn't change the flavour much.

0 min addition is in the pot (as per some edits I see in the Little Fella's discussion), and you can dry hop with another say 25-30 grams of Cascade if you like dry hopping).

Also switch the 1056 liquid yeast for a dry US-05 if you prefer.
