    Hi Everyone

    I've done a number of NEIPA's and want to try a batch without the typical Citra, Galaxy, Mosaic hop combo. I have read about a few new hops and Bru-1 and Idaho 7 caught my attention. I'm thinking of trying this recipe below. Please let me know your thoughts? Are the ratio's correct?

    Grain
    6.25 lb 2 row
    6.25 lb Golden Promise
    2.5 lb Flaked Oats
    1.25 lb Wheat
    0.25 lb Crystal 10 or 15

    Hops
    0.75 oz Apollo 60 min

    1.5 oz Idaho 7 whirlpool (170F)
    2 oz Bru-1 whirlpool (170F)
    2 oz El dorado whirlpool (170F)

    1 oz Idaho 7 @ 70% atten (day 3)
    1.5 oz Bru-1 @ 70% atten (day 3)
    1.25 oz El dorado @ 70% atten (day 3)

    1 oz Idaho 7 on day 7
    1.5 oz Bru-1 on day 7
    1.25 oz El dorado on day 7

    I have yet to try Idaho 7 but I have used Bru-1. It is extremely fruity and smells just like Pineapple and tastes wonderful - if you like fruity beers that is. I used it as part of the Whirlpool (30g = 50%) and Dry hop (20g = 25%) mixtures. Turned out great.
    I, personally, would bung in a load of rice hulls to stop the wheat sticking the mash but that is probably a quirk of my system requirements.
