Default Hill Famstead Abner Clone

Found this recipe and thought I would share. Abner is one of my favorite double ipa.

Batch: all-grain
Size: 5.5 gallons/21L
OG: 1.077
FG: 1.014
IBU: 100+
SRM: 7
ABV: 8%

Ingredients
15lbs 2-row pale malt
.75lbs caramalt (37L)
1lb corn sugar
1oz Warrior hop @60min
.75oz Columbus @30min
1oz simcoe @knockout/whirlpool
1oz centennial @knockout/whirlpool
.5oz Chinook @knockout/whirlpool
3oz Simcoe dry hop (day 7 for 7-10 days
2oz Chinook dry hop (day 7 for 7-10 days)
1 Tb Polycar
Yeast: Wyeast 1028, white labs WLP013 or Lallemand Nottingham

It's a single infusion mash. Target mash temp is 149 degrees. Hold for 45 minutes, then mash out or begin lautering phase. Collect 7 gallons in boil kettle and boil for 75 minutes adding hops as instructed. After boil is done, create a whirlpool and add the knockout hops and let rest for 30 minutes before chilling. Target pitching rate is 1 million cells. Ferment at 68 degrees for 7 days. After 7 days add Polycar or fining agent to clear yeast from the beer. Then add the dry hops for 7-10 days. Some tips to getting this beer right are: using a hop spider or a muslin bag to collect as much hop material as possible especially when using whole hops. Try to have chloride and sulfate levels in your brewing water around 50 ppm.

Is this one of the BYO clones from the October issue?

Doesn't specify, I'll be doing it in primary. Brewed this on Sunday and was way off for OG and total fermenting wort. I messed up somewhere obviously but I'm going to give the recipe another shot soon!

When do you add the corn sugar? Last 5 min of the boil? Also, would Carapils be a good sub for Caramalt or should I be looking at blending some crystal?

Corn sugar at last 10 minutes of boil. Caramalt is usually around 37L so your best bet may be to blend crystal.

Hops and yeast (WLP013) have been ordered... I'm brewing this soon! I do not have access to Polyclar though. I'll use Irish Moss and Whirlfloc instead.

Abner is one of the best beer I've ever had!
