Also interested in if the previous post would make for a good half batch recipe. Anyone able to coin in on this?

Thanks,
Schif

I punched this into beersmith to save the recipe, and to my surprise it listed this...

Bitterness: 13.5 IBUs

It this a beer smith error? i just made an irish red, 2 gallon boil, 5 gallon batch size, with 2 ounces of hops put in at about the same times and it hit 20 IBU's. Something tells me it's a beersmith boo boo... However I'm still learning my way around BeerSmith, so if I did something wrong let me know. Just curious.

Schif

here is the report i had beer smith generate, i upped the DME, only change.

Looks a little paler than I was expecting, but tasted pretty good. Should be an easy drinker.
Just popping back in to say that I bought the ingredients to make this one a second time (took a child-induced sabbatical, this one was first on the list when I got back). This was the first brew I made that I personally drank all of. Thanks for the recipe, Yooper!

I brewed this just the other day. However, after topping up the wort to 25 litres, and a good mix with my spoon, my OG reading was 1032.

Could this be due to not mixing enough? I gave it a decent mix before reading the OG, but perhaps not quite enough? Can this happen?

If that is the case, should I just presume my OG is 1.042?

I'm not sure what happened, but generally the batch size is 5 gallons (19 liters), so the extra 6 liters of water would definitely dilute it and 1.032 seems about right with an extra 6 liters.

I'm planning on doing this one in the near future. What (if any) adjustments would you make for doing a full boil?

What about late extract addition, or are you putting everything in at the beginning to intentionally darken things a bit?

Thanks.

Planning on trying this one this weekend. I have a starter going for some WLP-005 that I washed from a previous batch.

Brewed it up with a big help from my wife since my back is still bugging me. Will report back when it's done.
