Well, actually I did brew in the late 90's. I do want to start again so I stopped by a local supply house and Palmer's book was suggested. I'm a bit hazy on some of the new terms for me at least. A Farmhouse Ale I like a lot uses Pale Malt, Malted Wheat, Magnum, Bravo, Amarillo, and Citra. Currently trying to get a handle on procedure and hop addition times/sequence. Looking for some direction.

Great book to read after you get done with Palmer's book. Also 2nd Tues of the month come to a meeting at Perennial.

Thanks. Back a few years ago I never really did much research. There's so much now that its difficult to figure out where to start. Any input on which hops of the four and steeping order and times? Thanks again.

Magnum/Bravo is usually done at the start of the boil due to the high BU's. The Citra & Amarillo to get the most out of them should be added toward the end 15 min left to at flame-out.

IMO, a farmhouse ale should showcase the yeast more than the hops. I'd go for a small bittering with either Magnum or Bravo (Magnum is one of my preferred bittering hops) and a light touch of the Citra and Amarillo at the end. What yeast are you planning to use?
