Those IBU differences really don't make that much of a difference in the grand scheme of
things. I doubt anyone can tell the difference between a 25 IBU beer and a 26 IBU
beer......You're only seeing ...

You can't get to a IIPA with the amount of grain you have.I would use all of the 2 row, and the
carapils - just becauseHop with1 oz. Magnum at 60 minutes1 oz. Centennial at 15 minutes1 oz.

How high of an ABV are we talking about?About the same as the OP. I'd like to finish with
something above 18% with a decent FG. I'm planning out doing it with stepped additions of high
gravity wort th...

Getting back to my attempt at Barley wine starting at 1.165 that stalled at 1.060 despite

no change since the 1.065 I recorder 3 weeks ago. Anybody have a suggestion on what I could /
should do no...

I brewed a sour cherry braggot December 2013. Goes on the gas this weekend. I don't have the
numbers I'm front of me, but I believe it was approx 13% abv and definitely needed at least a
year. It's fi...

I wouldn't use it. I would give it some more age and enjoy it as is. Call it a double ipa and
then you won't expect a heavy mouthful. Besides then you have a great reason to brew another
batch to get ...

You got a 1.081 barleywine down to 1.006?I guess he could have done almost all 2row mashed at
