I am running a series of OG batches with 10lb/30IBU with a gravity of about 1.050 and they are well balanced and very drinkable.
EDIT: I just ran it as a 5 gallon batch with a 3 gallon boil and got 1.072/34IBU.
If you drop the corn sugar and Special B you'll get 1.064/40ish which would be much more balanced.
i added the corn sugar to lighten the body and flavor slightly i have not tried this technique before. i also have not used special B i wanted to try it, i was thinking it would add a nice color maybe it would be better suited elsewhere
I don't know how much it will change but i do full boils usualy. thanks for the advice i will 86 the special b
