I don't know that recipe, but all hops are bittering hops in a way. Consider 'hopbursting',
when all hops are added at 20 minutes or less in the boil- it uses more hops but plenty of IBUs

Brewing the clone kit from AHBS and it called for no bittering hops? Just 30, 5, & 0 additions.
Thought it a little odd. 1st brew I've ever done that was like that. Smelled awesome though!

Not too impressed with final product to be honest. Not bad, but not great. Not surprised though
considering I'm a big citrusy hop fan. Either it is beer that will be consumed! Won't be
brewing this ag...

First time I brewed this was first batch kegged and I had about a gallon leak out...was pissed
enough at that, but yours takes the cake. Sorry to hear that. I just kegged my 3rd batch of
this using a ...

ambient of 68 really depends on yeast strain as to whether "too hot" like many are claiming.
Prior to swamp bucket, I did ambient 70 with US05 and never had issue of fusels....though I
will say adding...

Posted in thread: 10 Minute Mash? Mind Blown... on 02-08-2015 at 02:55 AM
I've been curious about that too. I've made 3 recipes doing 30 min mashes using finely crushed
grain. I've always used US05 on these recipes and they always ended under 1.010. With 30 min
mashes, I hi...

Why won't you consider partial boils? Mash with appropriate volume (in your case around 4 gal)
and in true BIAB Style just crush the **** out of the grain and get full conversion and mashout

Fully agree with quitting the secondary. Brew temp less likely, 70 is not ideal temperature but
definitely not overly high to the point of ruining a batch like the 0P states.

I guess at this point, the only viable solution is bottle it when done and let sit for 3-4
moths then mail out samples to all of us for some constructive feedback! Honestly, you'll be
able to tell at ...
