Assist me with my schedule/timing:

21 days in the "primary" carboy then, being very mindful of sanitation (and needing the carboy) I racked to a secondary. Been in the secondary carboy 7 days. Haven't added the final hops per the instructions.

What would be a good time in the secondary and then ultimately to the corny?

no reason to age this one...

i've made it a few times and i like it best fresh - mine is usually on tap about a month after brew day. get it on the dry hops now and toss some in the serving keg when you rack too. i've done 1 oz per 5 gal dry-hop in secondary for 2 weeks and 1 oz in the serving keg with great results...

I'd dry hop it now, wait a couple weeks, keg it (I add more dry hops there, too) and drink ASAP!

Wondering about the units in this recipe. When I enter it in Beersmith (assuming 5 US gallons) I get about 1.085 OG, as the original poster did. When I convert it to 5 UK gallons, e.g., 6 US gallons, I get about 1.073, as Denny states. Most of the iterations I have seen, including those posted by Denny, call for 5 gallons. I want to get this right. Am I right in assuming that the recipe is constructed using UK gallons? Or am I missing something?

Cheers!

Jason

Well, unless I am seriously screwing up the math somewhere, the recipe *needs* to be 6 gallons to come in at 1.073 with 16.25 pounds of grain and a ~73% efficiency. But, I can't find any discussion anywhere online where someone notes that the recipe is calibrated to UK gallons, i.e., that it should be 6 US gallons, which seems odd (if I am correct) given how often it is brewed. I am perplexed. What volume do people here normally aim for?

The 1.073/73% I got straight from Denny here: http://www.tastybrew.com/forum/thread/76127 (see below)

Batch Size (GAL): 5.00 Wort Size (GAL): 5.00
Total Grain (LBS): 16.25
Anticipated OG: 1.073 Plato: 17.8
Anticipated SRM: 12.2
Anticipated IBU: 75.1
Brewhouse Efficiency: 73 %
Wort Boil Time: 70 Minutes

67.7 11.00 lbs. Pale Malt(2-row) America 1.036 2
18.5 3.00 lbs. Rye Malt America 1.030 4
7.7 1.25 lbs. Crystal 60L America 1.034 60
3.1 0.50 lbs. Cara-Pils Dextrine Malt 1.033 2
3.1 0.50 lbs. Wheat Malt America 1.038 2

When I run those numbers it just doesn't work out.

Correction: You can 1.073 with 5 US gallons, if you assume 65% efficiency, but elsewhere online Denny notes that he "typically get[s] 75-80% efficiency" from his batch sparge set up.

Answered my own question: Here Denny specifically notes that the recipe is calculated for 65% efficiency, so US gallons it is. (Weird that he uses a lower efficiency than he claims to get off his system...) http://hbd.org/discus/messages/15516...tml?1046703590

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!! (Sorry to be spamming on this one, but it is driving me crazy.) Denny corrects himself in that post and notes that 65% was wrong, he really gets 75%, which brings back the 1.085 OG on US gallons. Here's a version that uses 6 gallons and the same grain bill: http://www.brew365.com/beer_dennys_rye_ipa.php

haha...don't worry about it. just enter your estimated efficiency and your desired volume and scale the grain to get 1.073
