I have never mashed or boiled longer than 60 mins each. I was very happy with the results of this batch.

On a side note, I tasted some Stone IPA again, and I think those honey-like flavors I was tasting before are probably just dextrines. To make an accurate clone, I would probably throw in some Carapils. Stone is a little too sweet IMO though, so I like this version better anyway.

It's funny but I had a stone IPA sitting around that I wanted to compare my clone to. Like Edwort when I poured it it looked dead. There was no head and it was very tubid. The hop flavor and aroma was dead. Needless to say my clone was a lot better and working off memory it seemed to be a good clone. I wish I would have had a nice beer to compare it to. Quality issues don't make me want to keep buying their beer.

Just kegged an Austin Homebrew Stone IPA clone recipe, what should I be shooting for as far as CO2 volume?

What yeast did you go with on that recipe? I'm going to brew it this weekend and was just going to go with the Safale S-04

Just ordered the bill for this.

Anyone gone the Pacman route with this?

I have been using pacman in place of US-05 for a while now. I'm pretty sure that's what I used on my last batch of this clone. Turned out excellent.

OK - got my goodies in from Northern Brewer. I'll be stepping up the starter tonight.

I've seen a few different numbers on IBU targets for this - 66,77, 93, etc.

What should I be aiming for?

Thanks

AT

I bundled up and cooked this up yesterday. I hit my mash @ 152 and sparged to 7 gallons. My efficiency ended up @ 93%! This is the second beer I've hit in the 90's. Either my 5 gallon Rubbermaid and Barley Crusher are tuned just right or I need a new hydrometer.

At any rate - my harvested Pacman is chewing away with a steady stream of bubbles coming out of the blow-off. I look forward to this beer.

Cheers

AT
