Well I brewed this today. I did about 6.25 gallons and got a SG of 1.090. Im happy with that. It means that if I brewed the whole 6.5 I be right where I should have been. I just dont have the space to do the extra .25 gallon. Hopefully that doesnt affect the final product too much. Used the same amount of hops.

Brewed this tonight and ended up with 1.085 FG and 6 gallon post boil. This is the first time for me making an IIPA, and I learned a lesson LOL I dumped all 6 gallons in a 6.5 gallon bucket, on top of a clean US05 cake. 20 minutes later wort is foaming out of airlock. Hooked up a blow off tube right away and put it in a rubbermaid container with cold ice packs, holy crap. RDWHAHB? I hope the lid doesn't rip off tonight

Can't wait to try this, another 2 months probably. I'm going to transfer to secondary tonight for a month, and then bottle condition for a month before trying one. Waiting sucks!

Just racked to secondary, 5.4 gallons. Smelled delicious Can't wait to dry hop, I'm only doing 4oz that I have on hand.

1.084 > 1.014 = 9.17% ABV

My first big beer, I'd say I get awesome efficiency, even with big grain bills. I thought I was going to have issues with so much grain, so happy right now. I just bottled my dead ringer, and I am going to be bottling my first ever recipe in 2 weeks, kind of a pale ale recipe based of this recipe with hop bursting.

Cheers,
Justin

This has been in the keg naturally carbing and conditioning for at least 2 months now. Brewed it and then had a catastrophe here at home ( tree fell on the house June 29th) so been busy trying to fix all that lol...probably toss it in the kegerator and tap it in a few days....looking forward to trying it.

You may have answered this already. Are your hops pellets plugs or whole/leaf?
