I've got it plugged into BeerSmith at 45 IBUs with all pellet hops (though I substituted mostly leaf when I actually brewed it). IIRC, I scaled it up to 15 gallons without much (if any) tweaking from the original. I did adjust for the actual AA of the hops I had on hand:

Amarillo: 8.9%
Simcoe: 14.4%
Cascade: 5.0% (substituted oz for oz for Centennial - won't affect IBUs considerably since it's only added at 5 minutes and later)

Ok, maybe I did more tweaking than I previously thought. It looks like I cut the bittering additions by a bit in order to maintain 45-ish IBUs in BeerSmith. Here's my 15 gallon recipe:

Scale my version or just go with the original recipe above (BTP and BeerSmith calculate IBUs differently). Either way, it'll turn out to be a fantastic beer.

Cool, thanks! (Now I just gotta wait till LHBS opens again from inventory, so I can get me some more buckets!)

Well, now I am confused. I get 60.3 in Beersmith, but I see that Dude's IBU's are much lower on his recipe sheet. Are you guys saying I should adjust the bittering hops to get to the 45ish range to faal withing guidelines for the style?

Thanks

Yeah...my Beersmith is kicking out about 62 IBU's as well.

I did adjust the bittering additions, but it's not necessary (I attributed the "off" numbers to a scaling error, which I see now is not the case). The differences in the numbers are simply the differences in brew software algorithms. If you want to stay faithful to Dude's recipe, follow his, and accept that BeerSmith gives you a number outside the style guidelines. If you want to brew it the way I did, adjust the numbers. I was quite happy with my results, as was Dude, but I also had his original Lake Walk when I visited Virginia, and it was extremely good. Both recipe variations should give you a tasty end result.

Thanks for the information. I guess I'll try Dude's recipe and call it an AIPA.
Happy New Year.

Where the heck are you all finding Simcoe to brew this? Can't seem to find Simcoe or Columbus anywhere... Would love to give this one a try if I could only find Simcoe...

Just bought some today my LHBS. They had plenty of Simcoe pellets and plugs.
