Ok, I'm gearing up to make this, and I'm prepared to follow the recipe exactly, but with the FWH Goldings, won't the perceived IBUs be a bit low? My brewing software calculates the IBUs at 20.7, which is below standard for the style. That said, I'm prepared, like Luke Skywalker, to forego the computer for the Force, but I thought I'd ask first. Clearly no one has had a problem with this beer being too mild, but I just wanted to throw this out there in case I'm missing something...

Hmm, Beersmith calculates about 35 IBU when using the amount of hops at the AA% and the times listed in the recipe. Maybe it's a difference between software calculations or maybe you're basing it on a batch of hops with lower AA%? Some software calculates FWH additions as having the bitterness of 20 minute additions, though I think that's a mistake. Although FWH additions provide flavor like a 20 minute addition would, they provide more bitterness than an addition of their boil time not FWHed would, though the bitterness is "smoother" and might be perceived as being slightly less. As long as your hops are around the same AA% as those listed in the recipe, the bitterness of this recipe is nicely balanced.

I'm using Brewtarget, which I think does calculate FWH as a 20 min addition. I've only made an Oatmeal Stout using FWH, and while the bitterness calculated by the software tasted fine, in an Oatmeal stout it's pretty hard to overhop. In researching for that brew, the general consensus for FWH seemed to be while the real bitterness was indeed high, the perceived bitterness was lower, but perhaps "smoother" is a better way to describe it.

At any rate, I wasn't going to mess with what is clearly a popular (and beautiful, based on the pics) brew, so I just wanted to clear it up! Thanks for the reply, and the recipe! Cheers!

I agree. I brewed it and drank it. Beers like this tempt me to go 10 gal. I added 4 oz of biscuit, and over carbonated a little, but AWESOME none the less.

Brewed this tonight.. My first AG, and my equipment is far under par. Looks and smells great though. I can't wait to try it!
