How did this turn out? Are you aging any of it?
Which yeast did you end up using the WLP 570 or the WY1388?

Haven't brewed it yet, won't until next year since I already did my tripel for this year. It's Stone's exact recipe so we already know it's good, though. :)

I realize it's Stone's exact recipe. I posted a thread with a link for the Vertical series under Clone your own Stone. I think this this database is really intended for recipes that the OP has actually brewed.
This thread really belongs in the ingredients forum, or perhaps a Commerical recipe forum. I'm not discounting that it may not be a good recipe, but the point of the database is to supply reliable recipes the OP has done. just my 2 cents.

Stone's recipe does not call for such aggressive hopping. They specify about .5 oz of both Simcoe and Amarillo at 60 and for the dry hop.

I understand why you bumped the amounts up though, it does not seem possible to achieve their stated 65 IBU with the hop amounts they are using.

They may not have factored in the decreased hop utilization because of the smaller batch size exactly right.

If you are doing a full boil of 7.5 to 8 gallons you should get really good hop utilization and still it does not seem possible without doubling the boiling hops. No big deal really, just find it interesting that their prescribed hopping schedule is so light compared to what it seems you would need. Maybe they have a super AA hop connection. :)

I am brewing this next week and basically worked up the same recipe yesterday. Although I am using 14 lbs. of 2-row and figuring 70% efficiency. I came up with and ordered the same amount of hops as Saccharomyces suggested. Going to harvest and wash the Wyeast 1388 currently in my primary for my Belgian Hose Water recipe.

imaguitargod 02-12-2009 03:48 PM

So what yeast should be used?

EDIT: Nevermind, I see most will be using 1388.
