I added this recipe in brewers friend and the ibus calculated to 19, that's no where close to 60. What did i do wrong?

Was thinking of bumping up the flame out hops to .75 oz and 15 minute hops to .5 oz, thoughts on that?

Here's the recipe i entered into that site

http://www.brewersfriend.com/homebre...335/pako-s-ipa
I think the amounts that the brewery gave were too low for a homebrewed batch. My theory is that when he, the brewer that emailed MrNic, scaled the batch he just divided everything in their recipe down to a 5 gallon batch, not taking hop utilization into account. I would think that they get much higher utilization in their larger boils than we do in our home breweries. I don't know if I'm right about that but the amounts given definitely need to be bumped up. I would increase everything as in my recipe 1 post above yours.

The one I came up with is for a one hour boil. You may wish to tweak it some if you want to do a 2 hour boil. I don't think anyone has brewed it yet but I'm planning to do it soon.

Gonna brew this tomorrow. I'll post updates as the beer progresses. I'm going to use a Burton-on-Trent water profile.

I brewed this on 1/27 and it's been in primary since. I just took a sample and after just short of 2 weeks this is one tasty beer. The hops are a bit sharp, to be expected, but I'm sure they will mellow with another couple weeks. So far, I'm really impressed with this. I was just a couple points shy of the target OG of 1.065 at 1.063 but hit the FG of 1.014 so I'm at 6.4% ABV. I think I'm going to let it sit for another week in primary, then keg and dry hop. I'll keep updating but I'm going to go ahead and recommend this one.

Oh, the caveat is that it's been a couple years since I've had a Pako's and I live in VA so I can't really speak to how close this is to the original. I just remember the Pako's was really tasty.

Thanks for doing the legwork on this guys! I love this beer, especially riverside after catching trout on the fly.

Kegged & dry hopped today. That was definitely the most hops I've ever used to dry hop. I'm going to let it sit until next Wednesday then pull the hops bag and put it on the gas to carbonate. Should be ready to drink on Friday, I'll let you know how it tastes.

I hope it turns out well. If you are unable to get it, I would be willing to find time to send you a 6'er, as I am in the area. At least that way we could get some tasting notes, see how it compares, and go from there. Maybe arrange a trade?

This makes a lot more sense as I wouldn't think they'd bother with using both hops for the bittering addition AND one of the brewers told me that they go heavy on the finishing hops. Make sense to everyone else?
Yes, you are correct. I asked for help brewing their Zonker stout and they sent me a whole spreadsheet of info. It included the same 2hr boil and "weird" hop additions, so I asked for clarification. Basically, their notation is the opposite of standard homebrew notation...so, their 30 min addition is 30 minutes INTO a 2 hour boil. Their 2 hour additions are flameout additions.
