We are doing a Raging Beaaatch this weekend, got a solid recipe, but those of you who have brewed this beer, is there anything you would do different. Some of the numbers in brewsmith look a little different than the actual beer, but not worried about that... Thanx for any advice you can offer.

2.00 lb Pilsner (2 Row) UK
1.50 lb Crystal 40L
1.00 lb Cara-Pils

1.00 oz Warrior [17.20 %] @60 min
0.50 oz Amarillo [7.20 %] @30 min
0.50 oz Columbus [14.40 %] @30 min
1.10 oz Columbus [14.40 %] @15 min
1.00 oz Amarillo Gold [7.20 %] @15 min

That looks very similar to something I did in May, and I was very pleased with. Mine wasn't as much of a hop punch in the face like RB, but I used less hops than you and it was good nonetheless. The malt bill is nearly exactly what I did, but I used German pils malt instead of UK (its what I had) and I didn't use any Carapils. In retrospect it didn't need it, there was plenty of body left and it had good head retention.

Default RB clone

how about some info:

Mast temp
Total boil time
SRM
IBU
OG
FG

Also, dry hop for 11 days, that is a bit long, as I have been told more than 7 days tends to give beer a grassy tang.

Batch Size: 6 gallons
Boil Time: 90 min
Expected IBU: 102
Expected SRM: 11
Measured OG = 1.082
Brewhouse Efficiency = 75%
FG = 1.018
ABV = 8.4%


- Mash in with 25qt water at 170F
- Mash temp after adding grains was 150F
- 1 hour mash, then added 2gal near-boiling water to bring temp up to 165F
- 10 min rest, then recirculate & collect roughly 5.5gal wort
- Added 1.5gal near-boiling water, recirculate, collect

and we have always hopped for at least two weeks, but I am willing to change it up... always more to learn

I would go off of your experience. If you've dry hopped for two weeks and it tasted great then why does it matter what somebody told someone else.

You prob need 2.3 oz of Amarillo dry hop to get the ratio FD uses for a 5 gal batch. S-
