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

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.


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!
