Help please. I'd like to brew a "half" batch for this recipe. Please tell me how to decide upon weights for a bitterness between 25-30.
Type: Pale Ale
Volume (final): 2.5 gal
Volume (boil): 3.0 gal
Yeast: Safale S-05 (re-hydrated)
Briess, LME, Pilsner Light, 3.3#
LHBS, DME, Amber, 2.5#
Northern, 0.50 oz, 60 min, 8.0% AA
Cascade, 0.50 oz, 30 min, 6.9% AA
Cascade, 0.50 oz, 15 min, 6.9% AA
It makes sense to just divide the hops in half, but do I also do this with the malt extracts. Also, I'll not be adding more water after the brew (in the fermenter), because of the smaller volume.
I've found several IBU calculators on-line, but can't locate a "simple" OG calculator.
Thanks for the help.
