Sounds like you're not clear on your mash volumes. Do you know what your OG was before and after you added the 2.5 gals of water? It will probably be helpful to know your setup before anyone tries to help you get this right.

Personally I am still a bit of a newbie, but I'm getting my system down more and more after every brew. Whatever your issues are I'm sure we can figure this out. Give us a bit more info on your system (mash tun, or if you're using extracts, boil kettle, where you got your water volume numbers from, etc).

Good luck.

I couldnt measure my OG because I didnt have the tools at the time. I think a step by step instruction for this recipe would do the everyone wonders.

I didnt have a mash tun, didnt run extracts. I steeped the ingredients and added the hops by time as shown in the original recipe, I ended up with a gravity of about 1.010 I believe, my ABV is around 4%. I did taste it yesterday and I was more than thrilled with the outcome. Its the best beer I have ever tasted and its not even carbonated.

I've had my eye on this recipe for a long time...finally got around to brewing it this past week. Added some Belgian Aromatic malt to add a little more color and bumped up the Honey malt by 1/2 lb (mistake on my part). Also added a bit more corn sugar to accommodate my system efficiency. I also used the Gleneagles variant of the Maris Otter as it happens to be a personal favorite. Hit my adjusted target of 1.094 right on the button. Also ran it through 2 oz of Amarillo leaf hops with my Hop Rocket. Fermenting nicely at present...really looking forward to this one.

Moved into secondary and added dry hops. Very nice flavor...had some decent hop flavors prior to dry hopping...hope to bring it up a notch. Looked at my hop leftovers after a busy month of brewing and I think I have enough leftovers for a second round of dry hopping next week

Picked up the ingredients to brew this on next Saturday. I'll follow the recipe exactly for the first go. I'll end up kegging this too. I'm excited, after a year of brewing this will be my first "big beer" and my first AG IPA. Done a few other extract IPAs and about half a dozen AG BIAB.

cheers!

I kegged my batch this morning. It has been tasting pretty good all along the way. I was really impressed with the hop flavor profile...this brew likely has the most hop flavor I have ever encountered. I expected more hop aromas to match, although they seemed a bit underwhelming in comparison to the flavor profile. Could be a combination of the cold crash temperature and lack of carbonation at this point. Just about there now

I know its been a while but what happen if i add the late hop addition with the hops for dry hopping? do you think i can get more flavor and aroma by avoiding the primary fermentation? (somebody says that the CO2 from fermentation scrub the hop aroma)

Default Excellent Results!!!


Really, truly, enjoying this brew. Has easily jumped into one of my all time favorite spots. Thanks so much for sharing, BierMuncher! Trying to get an updated photo from SWMBO with hops in place of the strawberries so I can have a label worthy of the brew
