Brewing an IPA with Saaz and Cascade

Recommended Posts

I have a good amount of extra cascade that I'd like to use.

I'd also like to use some of the other hops I have without buying any new ones aside from maybe and ounce or two to complete a possible recipe.

I have some centenial and saaz hops.

My thought was to use centenial at first wort then add my saaz and cascade through out the boil as needed. Then dry hop with either of them. More than likely saaz.

I'm wondering if anyone has used cascade and saaz together?

Right now I would have centenial, saaz and cascade. Open to suggestions to improve or enhance. Maybe adding a 4th hop?

Thanks

I would think the centinial would play better with the cascades than the saaz will. It would be helpful if you put some together in your hand and took a sniff.

Centenial goes great with Cascade. Use it quite frequently.

However I have this lonely ounce of Saaz lol and am trying to use it.

The hops are sealed so rather not open until I am ready to brew.

For what it is worth this is what I have so far:


9 lbs Pale Malt (2 Row) US
1 lbs Caramel/Crystal Malt - 10L
1 lbs Vienna Malt
8.0 oz Caramunich Malt
4.0 oz Cara-Pils/Dextrine
1.00 oz Ahtanum [6.00 %] - Boil 60.0 min
0.50 oz Cascade [5.50 %] - Boil 50.0 min
0.50 oz Centennial [9.00 %] - Boil 50.0 min
0.50 oz Cascade [5.50 %] - Boil 30.0 min
0.50 oz Saaz [4.00 %] - Boil 15.0 min
0.50 oz Saaz [4.00 %] - Boil 5.0 min

Centenial is already included in the recipe. I will look for a replacement for the Saaz then.

Maybe Glacier or something.
