and to add the OG was 1.070 hoping to get it down to 1.008

241 IBUs

I'm on my netbook, and not great with "grams" and "KGs", so it looks ok without knowing for sure how many grams are in an ounce. :D I would definitely cut the 60 minute hops, as you don't need that many for bittering. I'd use 1.5 ounces (no idea how many grams) total at 60 minutes.

There isn't any way to have 200+ IBUs, by the way. Sure it calculates to that, but you can't get that many hops oils into suspension (about 100 IBUs is the max) plus the human tongue can't discern anything above about 100 IBUs.

28 grams = 1 ounce

1 kg = 1000 grams

Bitter DME = 4#

Wheat DME = 1.1#

Light DME = 3.9#

60 mins is roughly 2 ounces and change

15 mins is roughly 2.5 ounces

5 mins is 1 gram under 2 ounces

and dry hop is right under 3 ounces

that's probably not gunna happen. most extract is only 75-80% fermentable, so to get to 89% you're gunna need a good amount of simple sugar.

+1 to reducing the bittering

well the OG hydrometer reading was 1.070 and i have been getting the FG past 1.008 regularly, so going by the readings it should be around 8.5% and 9% in the bottle.

you've been getting fg's that low from 70? i didn't even think that was possible with just extract. i would have assumed this would be finishing around 16

It's true mate, I had it once at 1.003 using the same yeast and extract. Maybe the hydrometer is reading out.. but it all ways had weighed the same as when I bought it! Hahaha the only time it didn't go below 1.015 was when I brew a 16% triple IPA.. which I am dumping tomorrow from heavy galaxy hoping in the 60 min boil.

dcp27 11-12-2011 08:37 PM

i dunno how thats possible, but thats incredible. how are you able to get such high attenuation out of extract?
are you sure your hydrometer is accurate? i dunno how you could possibly get 90% attenuation on a 16% brew with just extract unless you were using beano.
