That is a good point, I didn't look at those numbers in great detail at first, but some of those bittering additions do seem a bit low. Quickly plugging their recipe numbers for the IPA into Beer Calculus, I get about 25 IBU, whereas their website stats for the same beer puts it at 69 IBU:

Not sure what that's all about. It's probably a good idea to throw the numbers into a program to make sure you get the desired bitterness. Anyway, you can cross reference the stats listed on their individual beer descriptions to make sure you get close to the right bitterness level with (most importantly) the right hop schedule (in terms of percentages at given times), as provided by the recipe.

They clearly used a wrong conversion factor. Keep proportions between the different additions the same. For example, the Ellies should have .75 Bullion and 1.75 Sterling. Works out to the proper IBU. I sent them an email alerting them to fix that before someone makes a lame batch.

Has anyone knocked up some beersmith recipes for these yet with the right ratios?

So will you buy more Avery beer or less now that you can make it for a fraction of the cost ?

I'll continue to buy Maharajah as there's no way I'm hitting that OG with my current equipment setup

Holy Crap, Joe's pilsner has a ton of flameout hops. I love that beer.

The 60 and 30 minute CTZ additions for the Maharaja recipe should each be 1.77 oz at the same listed bitterness to hit the 102 IBU they claim using Tinseth. And yeah, that recipe outstrips the capacity of my 10 gal round cooler, so it'll be quite some time before I make that one.
