Planning to brew this this Saturday...I put everything into Beersmith, but have 1 big problem.
Using the 3/1/1 hop amounts split into 10 additions every 10 minutes, I get WAY over 90IBU's and come in around 127!!! That is even with dialing down my system to 70% efficiency and using the full 16 lbs of 2-row. (My system is normally dialed in perfectly at 78% efficiency so I would only need 14 lbs of 2-row...which puts the IBU's still around 128.)
Did the OP type something in wrong? Or am I missing something?
I used BYO recipe and mine came out to 9.5% and the taste is pretty close. If I had a better filter system I think it would be spot on. And I may need to change the name to mind eraser, last weekend was a fog....
I filled my 10 gallon rubbermaid to the very top once I added the mash-out water.
I assume he is doing the partial mash, but it is unclear. Without knowing the equipment you have, it is difficult to recommend anything. My first partial mash that I recall was done in a cooler. I took some bendable copper tubing and drilled holes in it to get the wort out. Actually, before that, I I used pvc and drilled holes in the bottom of that in the bottom of my cooler. It worked fine.
Got the grains sitting at 150 in the Rubbermaid drinking a 60-minute, and have 2 90-minutes sitting in the fridge waiting for the boil to start. I'm doing 30 3-minute additions with an extra .25 oz of the simcoe @ 0. Thanks for the recipe and the help. Cant wait to be drinking mine instead of DFH!
As a follow-up on my previous post and brew: I had a low efficiency/OSG. I realize today that one of my thermometers is off. I have the traditional floating glass ones. One has moisture inside which cannot be good and is reading way too high. My guess is that the sparge water was way too low. Now I know why the grain temps weren't rising!
I think that I am in the market for a good digital thermometer following this. I saw a guy on lone (brew academy?) that uses a thermocouple with a wire. This seems pretty ideal
