Hey edwort/everyone else. I just attempted brewing a 11 gallon batch of this for my first 10+ gallon of the summer. My final reading came in at 1.075. This could either be because i had to do a double batch sparge since my cooler could only hold an additional 4 gallons of water with the grains. Or due to not being used to the boil off rate of this bigger/wider kettle. It seemed as though i had at least 10.5 gallons post boil since each time i filled the bottling bucket to transfer into carboy, it was well above the 5 gallon mark. How will this effect the beer and also is there anything i should do to get the brew closer to what it should be? Dont want to wind up with 10 gallons of un-enjoyable beer so any help will be appreciated.

Was wondering what yeast is everyone using, and what temp should I be using when I fly sparge. Also what is the original OG

This is now one of my regular brews. I use US-05, as specified in the recipe. It works so well, I've never had any reason to switch to something else. I don't fly sparge, I do a single infusion batch sparge with 3 gallons at 175F. My OG comes out at the upper end of the stated range, 1.070 - 1.075.

thanks for the info I just noticed that when I use the HBT app on my droid and look at this thread page 1 starts with the line BCB Rey IPA and then lists the ingredents. I cant see the top of the page where it lists the recipe type, yeast,batch size,og and so on. when I look at the forum on my pc or use the browser on my phone not the app i can see the entire page i also think ill fly sparge at 178 lookig foward to this beer brewing tomorrow.... cant wait

Default cold crashing


So the recipe says to stay in primary for 10 days then cold crash.is that done in the primary bucket? They say to cold crash for 3 days then ill keg and Carb will come up in about 8 days. So this beer will be done in 21 days?

In my experience, this brew was better a little further down the road. 22 days and it was a bit green. Month and a half to two was optimum if I remember correctly.

Since the only aroma addition is Chinook, I imagine Chinook would be the best for dry hopping.

Chinook sounds like a safe choice, I guess I was hoping to hear about some more unexpected, but equally delicious decisions.
