Got the kit today and it came with US-05.
Quick question- the recipe calls for boiling 2.5 gallons and then adding more water after the boil. If I were to boil 5.5 gallons (it makes 5 gallons), how would this affect the IBUs? I've heard it would increase them. It is supposed to end up with 55-60 IBUs following the recipe.
Would boiling 5.5 gallons affect anything else?
