I just plugged this into BeerSmith and while the OG, color, and ABV is correct, the IBUs (28 Tinsenth; 33 Rager) seem way off - almost double. Below is a pic of what I have which I believe I've entered correctly given the recipe sheet. Any ideas?

Recipe sheet (hops):
0.5 oz Styrian Goldings @ 90 min. (I received 4% AA)
1 oz Sterling @ 30 min. (I received 7.3%)
1 oz Sterling @ 1 min. (I received 7.3%)

Well here is my 10 gallons I brewed 7/24/2012. Left one has store bought zante currants and will get oak cubes soaked in 'Robert Mondavi Private Selection Cabernet'. Right one has Morebeer currants and will get the Consecration oak. Small jar is alittle left over I had out of primary... Threw a few drops of the Brett and roeselare blend in there as well...

This is my Consecration clone. I bottled it one month ago and added a half a vial of WL Brett C at bottling. For the first 2 weeks after bottling it had NO carbonation and is now sitting at light-ish (probably 1 1/2 volumes or so, I primed for 2.5)

I didn't use Roeselare blend on this. I pitched a clean abbey yeast, cold crashed and racked @ 1.016. I then added Brett L and B , and the oak and wine and let it go for 4 weeks, then added the currants (3 pounds), and the Lacto and pedio. It also got dregs from a couple of Jolly Pumpkins, Lindemans Cuvee Rene Gueuze, and monks café. I brewed it july 3rd.
I can honestly say it is definitely, by far, the sourest sour I have had. It is Marvelously sour. The night I was bottling I pulled myself a 6 or so ounce sample, put it in a tulip, and was sipping as I bottled. So my wife walks into the room and says "Is this a sample of what you are bottling?" "Yes", I say. She sniffs it: "That smells GOOD". Me: "taste if you like". Her: "Oh my god, this is GOOD!"...she then proceeded to abscond with my sample, and drink the whole thing. I took that as a vote of confidence.

This is my infection so far with just the roeselar blend. I brewed this starting in December. I pitched the roes at the end of January beginning of February.

I just bottled my MoreBeer Consecration kit after 13 months of fermenting and aging. FG = 1.005. I used Rockpile yeast and 4oz corn sugar for bottle carbonation. It tasted and smelled great! Only a few weeks to go till tasting the final product after over a year of waiting....

I had a friend lift the dagger image from the RR bottle label and I etched it onto my bottle caps with the laser cutter we have at work. Turned out great! Picture attached.
