What was your OG and FG? Total IBUs? SRM?

Thanks I'm still in the planning stages. I'm thinking about using wy1968 or wy1084

The numbers are in the first post, the recipe, in this thread. They are part of the form that you fill out when adding a recipe to the database.

OG 1.053
FG 1.008
IBU's (estimated) 38

Pappers.... Do you think it would change the beer much other than a little higher gravity and maybe a little darker to increase the Pale Malt to 9lbs and the Caramel20 to 1lb? Just easier to buy in full pound increments.

Thanks,
-Craig

I think that would work fine, Craig. It would be a little sweeter because of the caramel, but not a lot and it is already a dry-ish beer because of the honey. My recipe is an adaptation from the extract recipe the White House chefs released.

I'm brewing this tomorrow and plugged the recipe into Beersmith and scaled to a 4 gallon batch. It's estimating my IBUs at only 18.2, and that's with me upping them to the same amounts used in the 5 gallon recipe. Any idea why that would happen?

I'm not a hop head but I'm concerned this beer wouldn't be very balanced at only 18 IBUs. I'm a newbie though so I reserve the right to have no idea what I'm talking about here.

My IBU estimate comes from Beersmith. When I'm able I'll double check Beersmith.

Edit: I checked Beersmith and it says 37.9 IBU for this recipe. 21.6 in the 60 minute addition, 13.1 IBU in the 20 minute addition, and 3.2 IBU in the 5 minute addition.

Thanks... after looking at your numbers I found it was a newbie user error. I had the equipment set to extract and when I changed it to mini BIAB I'm now at 37.8 IBU's in mine.

Thanks again for sharing the recipe, can't wait to try this one!
