Default trying to clone Stone 7/7/07 today

the recipe is online:Stone Vertical Epic Ale

Here are the ingredients:
Pale Malt: 71.6%
Wheat Malt: 14.5%
Light Munich Malt: 5%
Vienna Malt: 5%
Blonde Candi Sugar: 3.9%

Glacier hop pellets
2 grams/gallon (0.078 oz/ gallon)

Crystal Hop Pellets
3.1 grams/gallon (0.11 oz/ gallon)

Powdered Ginger
0.3 grams/gallon (0.01 oz/ gallon)

Powdered Cardamom
0.25 grams/gallon (0.009 oz/gallon)

Dried Grapefruit Peel
2.4 grams/ gallon (0.09 oz gallon)

Dried Orange Peel
2.4 grams/ gallon (0.09 oz gallon)

Dried Lemon Peel
2.4 grams/ gallon (0.09 oz gallon)

White Labs blend of WLP 566 (Saison II)
and WLP 565 (Saison I)
and WLP 550 (Belgian Ale)


my question is about the hops; the site says to add the hops at once and then a 90 minute boil; I guess this means using two varieties for bittering and no 15 or flameout addition... isn't Crystal an aroma hop?

it also seems that the amount they say to use will produce very little in the way of IBUs...

snow day here in MA, so these are the "difficult questions" I need to answer before I start lautering at 11

I did the 08.08.08 and doubled the amount of hops they called for. There was no was I was going to hit the desired IBU total using their numbers. I would run your receipe through a calculator and adjust your hops accordingly.

Also look in beersmith as to what IBU method you're set to. I just noticed this last week. If using beersmith click options, then the bitterness tab
The same recipe gives me these 3 IBU ratings depending on method used.
Tinseth = 51
Rager = 41
Garet = 28
