They must have scaled their big batch recipes linearly, thus the low hops amounts. The bigger the batch, the less you need to hit the IBUs, correct?

The recipe errors are all part of Avery's master plan to lower your confidence as a clone brewer.

Was at their taproom today for lunch after a hike in Boulder. Had the Eremita IV blueberry/spruce sour, their 3Point5 Session, and the Summer's Day Tangerine IPA. All delicious.

I'm kind of amazed by the grain bill for Czar. There's no roasted barley, and only 3.9% of the bill is roasted malts. I had a bottle last winter and wasn't a big fan. It wasn't very dark for an imperial stout (you could see through it when you tilted the glass), and it wasn't particularly roasty. As I recall, it had more dark fruit flavors to it. Now, I can understand why. It's really not a typical RIS grain-bill.

As far as Maharaja goes, in the cybi interview, Adam Avery said that they used some malt extract in the grain bill to make the mash more reasonable. If I were brewing that beer, I'd use the cybi recipe; it should be easier. The hop amounts should be more accurate as well.

I think that's how much Tasty used when he brewed it; it was 8 or 9 per 5 gallons.
