Plus, he might not have just wanted more bitterness...more hops for more flavor and aroma. IMO, you can't add too many aroma hops in an IPA.

I could only find 2 oz. bags of Warrior hops and a 4oz. bag of Cent. I love the hops, so I have no problem using them. I'd rather do that than let them sit in my fridge for a year.

My POV on this being that you get in a situation where your additions are not yielding much benefit past a certain point....not just from a bitterness perspective but a flavor and aroma perspective as well. For example you put a ton of pepper on a french fry to the point where you only taste pepper....adding more pepper isn't adding more "pepper flavor" just adding more physical pepper.

Yes but you can add other flavors of pepper!

While related, that's a whole 'nother direction of discussion

Hey Ed - Have you tought about swapping out the Warrior for Magnum hops? I noticed on the Stone website they mentioned that they use Magnum hops for their bittering.

Not really. I may do some experimenting later, but this recipe ain't broke. It turned out a very tasty IPA. That's one of my goals in brewing is tasty brews that are consistant, batch after batch. So far, my hefe, kolsch, & haus have reached that phase. They all taste great and are consistant in flavor, aroma, appearance, etc. I'm adding this IPA to my standard line of brews as it's a winner and so far everyone who's tried it agrees. Hats off to AHS for a great recipe! Here's the link to their kit. I did the All Grain version.

What's the Alpha Acid on your hops?

I punched these into beersmith with their standard AA for warrior (15%) and centennial (10%) and I only came up with 33.7 IBU.

1 oz warrior at 60min
1 oz centennial at 15 and
1 oz centennial at 5

Dantodd - I put the recipe into Beer Smith as well and it came in right on target at 77 IBU. Did you specify 5 gallons?

Don't have that info off the top of my head. It's in my brew log back at home. I'll get to it in a week when I get back.

Uhmmmmm.

I'm coming up with 66.2IBU's and having tasted this brew...I can promise it is way north of 34IBU's.

I think you plugged in 10 gallons.
