The 3 stage yeast starter really paid off on this beer. Fermentation is in full swing 5 hours after going from kettle to primary!

Held back 1/2lb of the sugar, thought about adding it two days in but I hit 1.086 without it and have 3 packs of Notty rockin. Think I may just leave it the way it is.

I know this is an old thread but I was wondering, what IBU calculation did you use? With the IBU's in the Hundreds, I'm assuming Tinseths?

When I brewed this, I used about 12oz of hops, with Rager, and clocked in 204 IBU.

It was fantastic, and very close with a side-by-side with real Hopslam.

Not to say you can't get a clone that tastes really close with IBUs that are very different.... But I believe it's commonly understood that Bells aims for IBU in the upper 60's - not 100+. Hopslam really isn't super bitter considering its OG. However, it's very hoppy in flavor and aroma.

Whoops I didn't see you said Rager. Not even sure what that comes to in Tinseth....

I just wanted to chime in and say thanks for an incredible recipe. I made a few minor changes - used Chinook as an early bittering hop and dry hopped with Simcoe and Mosaic. I also missed my gravity by about 10 points, but that is my error.

The beer came out great, a balanced IIPA. I might reduce the honey malt a tad next go around to reduce the sweetness just a bit, but that is it. My total IBU's came out to around 100.

The flavors do seem very reminiscent of Hopslam, but it has been almost a year since I've had that. Hopefully I can do a side by side this winter - if I can get my hands on some Hopslam AND my keg of this beer lasts that long (doubtful).

My gravity is 1.016 after a week in primary, happy. It's pretty grapefruit to me, thinking of adding 8oz of honey to it. Should it just pour it in or boil with some water?

Dont boil it. If anything mix with a little hot water. Honey i sanitary and doesnt need to be boiled and it will lose some aroma.
