He mentioned 10 gallons.

That recipe will certainly be a hop bomb. Your recipe looks delicious to me.

How will you dry hop? Secondary? Keg? That will be a huge bag of soggy hops to pull out :-)

I think it looks alright. I was thinking you might wanna try something easier till you have your set up dialed in. Also maybe if you really want that hop bomb to move your 5 min addition to a little after flame-out, to really get that aroma and flavor.

Sorry let me rephrase that. How much wort are you collecting to start your boil. Not finish which i figured was 10 gallons.

I figure I should collect 14 gallons of wort for boil off. If I end up just under 10 gallons no big deal. I have made a few of successful 5 gallon batches but I have failed twice at 10.

Are you able to cool your wort down pretty quickly? And have you thought about switching the yeast to liquid and making a big starter?

I have a 50 ft chiller and a 25 that I put in an ice bath plus I hope the ground water is pretty cold. I have not thought about the yeast though I am open to suggestions.

Save yourself a bunch of time and just cold press the juice out of your hops and drink that !

Just kidding! kinda, WoW that is a hop bomb!

What kind of beers are your favorite ? if you are like me and don't like dbl. or triple IPAs then u won't like that beer.

I would suggest picking your favorite beer and cloning that, lots of great recipes on this forum, read the feed back on the recipes, if there are 10 replies (or more) all saying everyone that has tried this beer loves it, then its probably a winner.

Hope this helps!

Good Luck and Cheers
