If I'm replacing the 1lb of corn sugar with honey, it's not just 1:1 is it? I'm assuming I'd need a little more than 1lb of honey to hit the same OG?

Correct, you need 1.4 lbs to give you the same OG. Put it in last 10 minutes of the boil

I brewed this recipe (using honey instead of corn sugar) and had my first taste of it tonight when I was taking a gravity reading. WOW! It's only three weeks old now and it tastes almost exactly like the real Hopslam... maybe even better than the original.

I added the dry hops tonight and I can't wait to get this kegged. Thanks for the great recipe!

Just kegged this baby up after a week of dry hopping. Put it right next to a real Hopslam and the color was spot on. It tastes amazing. For the record, I was lazy and just used the lb of corn sugar per the original recipe posted, and decided not to mess with the honey.

I'll definitely be brewing this recipe again. Maybe I'll try the honey next time, we'll see.

Hi all, please excuse all grain noob question, but how much water per lb of grain do you use for mash, and the sparge? If I follow mashing instructions I have read it is 1 to 1-1/4 quarts per lb grain for mash, then a half gallon per lb for sparge. If I use that as a guideline then I get like a min of 15.0 gallons of water for boiling, for a 5 gallon batch.? Am I way off or has the efficiency been considered and additional grain added? I am attempting this as my first batch over weekend, and the water volume is giving me some concern.

I used 1.25 quarts/per pound and it comes out to 6 gallons of water in your mash tun. I use a little more than this as I fill the space below my false bottom and then add the water I need for the mash. The type of sparge you perform will determine how much more water you will need to hit a pre-boil volume of 7 gallons. I use the fly sparge method and will prepare another 7-8 gallons of water to sparge with. So for me this recipe would require 14 gallons of water. So you're calculation is not that far off I suppose. The efficiency is set @ 70%.

I brewed this last night and checked this morning and thanks to the nice starter I had was bubbling away. Due to the lack of Simcoe I substituted for the Falconers' Flight. I plan to secondary when gravity reaches correct level and dry hop for some days with the FF. Super Excited. Thanks for posting!

I have talked to a brewer at Bell's, he swears that 60-ish IBUs is correct. He said that because there is so much hop flavor and aroma, people think it's a lot more bitter than it actually is. This beer was designed to have as much hop character as possible without overwhelming bitterness, that is why some people who normally don't like IPAs or IIPAs like hopslam.
