I've found that the Daniels formula estimates much higher IBUs for a given amount of alpha acid units than Tinseth. I've been using Tinseth for a while, and found that the estimated IBUs seem quite short. When I run the same numbers through the Daniels formula, they seem a little more accurate (for my process anyway). Sometimes there is a difference of up to 7 or 8 IBUs between the two.

On tap:
1. Dry Stout 2. Cali Common 3. IPA 4. Pils 5.[Nitrogen] Oatmeal Blonde
1. IPA 2. IPA 3. Pils 4. Pils 5. none 6. none
1. Brett Ale 2. none 3. none 4. none
About 36 gallons of beer & 4.2 gallons of mead
Kegged & conditioning:
Imperial Bourbon Barrel Oatmeal Stout x2, Belgian Dubbel, Dry Stout, Cali Common
