This thread is about beer. If I have to babysit it one iota, it will get closed. If you post ANY political commentary in this technical forum, I will ban you for three days, no questions asked. Carry on.

Maybe it is because I am reading this thread on my phone but can anyone tell me where the other 1oz of the fuggles goes in the honey ale? I see it has 1 1/2 oz listed but the directions only say to use 1/2 oz with a minute left. Also what is the point of using gypsum in a extract recepie?

You're right, I'll try and get you an answer as to what to do with the other ounce or if it's a typo. Also have no idea about gypsum.

Also, i'm guessing they meant 10 AAU on the porter?
Near as i can tell from the googles, HBU is a way of referring to the equivalent AAU of 1 ounce of hops at a given AAU.

I could be wrong, but using that logic i came up with a recipe at ~25 IBU, which is the bottom of the range for a robust porter. And as porters go it is very, very robust.

You're not the only one. I noticed it too. I'm torn between using the whole 1.5 oz at flameout, or adding the unaccounted for ounce with the bittering hops. I'm thinking the latter.

I'm no water chemistry expert, but I'd think the effect on bitterness that the gypsum would provide would be there whether it's extract or all grain.

Increases hardness, specifically sulfate. Which has some effect on hop flavor.

It's an adjustment to the water, which is tricky to put in a recipe you are handing to someone who doesn't know what your water is like.

Edit: D.C. water quality report here: http://www.dcwater.com/news/publications/DC_Water_Annual_WQReport_2012.pdf

Also says that the D.C. water system uses chloramine. Should someone tell the whitehouse kitchen that they should really be treating their water with k-meta? Or should we assume that the whitehouse has state of the art filtration? Maybe they are brewing with RO water and add the gypsum because of that.

The gypsum is to add sulfate and calcium to soft water. If you have hard water I wouldn't use the gypsum.

I noticed that too and immediately assumed you add the extra ounce with the bittering hops.

Adding that other 1oz of fuggles at 45 minutes bumps it up to ~34 IBU, vaguely in style for an ESB. Original and finished gravity are still too high for an ESB, but whatever.

So that could be it.
