ok... quick question. ready to bottle the 90 min. took gravity on fri (1.020) but never had a chance to bottle. broke our hydrometer and bought a new one. had everything ready to bottle and checked again. this hydro says 1.030. still tiny bubbles rising to the top and the airlock is bubbling every 10-15 mins or so. this is after 2 weeks in primary and >2 weeks in secondary. am i about to make bottle bombs? is it ok to bottle now?

I think you need to de-gas your hydrometer sample. The CO2 in the tube will throw your reading off. Tap your tube a few times and give your hydrometer a spin.

Chances are pretty good your beer is ready to bottle and the bubbling in your airlock is probably just CO2 escaping for the beer.

nice post, I just had a 90 min Dogfish IPA the other day and I'm ready to brew this beer... it was amazing. I hope it turns out righteous for ya! Best of luck! I'll probably use your recipe (Extract brew), any tips?

I'm planning on doing an IPA fairly soon, something in the vein of a 90 minute (only more of a 70 minute, 7%/70 ibu). What's up with the odd hop schedule? Would 60 45 20 and 10 additions not have the same effect, despite similar or identical finishing ibu?

I just made a 60 min clone and did 60, 50, 40, 35, 30, 25, 20, 15, 5 minute additions. I think the closer to continuous you do the closer to the original you'll get. Mine's still in the primary so I don't know what results I'll get with my schedule. I tried getting the same IBUs as they get with the same hops just not as continuous. I did 3 ounces hops with the bittering hops done in 4 (1/4oz) additions, the flavor done in 3(1/3oz) additions, and the aroma done in 2(1/5oz) additions + 3x.75oz dry hop additions.

I'm just doing an IPA in general, although I do like pretty much everything about 90 minute (60 minute, not as much). Curious to hear more about a continuous schedule.

Just start adding hops at 60 and throw in a little every 30 seconds or whatever until the boil is done.Figuring IBUs is the tricky part, for me at least as all I have is a calculator.... Check out Yooper's 60 min clone and her schedule.

What's the rational for doing this though? That's what I'm curious about. It's much easier to add pre-measured amounts at distinct times.

In other words, could one come up with a good IPA that doesn't follow a continuous hop schedule? What does continuous add to the brew that would be absent in a stepped addition?
