Notes

Reserve 0.25 oz (7 g) of each hops addition for dry hop (see below).

After the boil, chill the wort to slightly below fermentation temperature, about 63°F (17°C). Aerate the wort and pitch the yeast.

Ferment at 64°F (18°C). After 72 hours, let the temperature rise to 68°F (20°C) and hold. After 7 days, add the small dry hops charge and wait an additional 3 days (or until all activity in the airlock ceases). Crash the beer to 35°F (2°C), then bottle or keg the beer and carbonate to about 2 volumes.

Instead of using the hops separately as listed, I blend them into a pile of Anglo-Bohemian hops and divide up the pile.If you want to “Americanize” the flavor profile, substitute Northern Brewer for the 30-minute addition and something piney for the 10-minute, and adjust for the alpha-acid difference to yield the same 40 IBUs.
