I brewed this on 3/24 and stuck to the recipe with the exception of of using wyeast 1056. Kept
in primary for 21 days and racked to a keg for dry hopping. Got down to 1.008. Close to 8% ABV.

This was talked about on BrewTV as well. They mentioned one brewery (the name eludes me)
actually only does a 60 minute addition and a whirlpool addition. It gives what is needed and
no waste.A lot of...

It depends on the amount of hop material you're talking about. I've never been able to achieve
a defined "cone" if I'm using ounces and ounces of hops in a 5 gallon batch. Anything larger
than a coupl...

You can either let it sit, or you can try blending something less bitter in to taste. I don't

I recommend against changing the gravity on this one. Its balance and flavor work really well

I've read a lot on this technique and am trying to come up with a scenario that I would not
want to eliminate a 60 (or 90) minute hop bitterness addition and instead get my bittering IBUs
from FWH add...

Looks pretty good to me although I'd ditch the carapils and make up the difference with
basemalt. Not sure about the pilsner either unless you're using up stuff on hand, 50/50 wheat
malt and pale malt...

I too was skeptical having brewed this before having the real thing. But I recently had the
real thing and it's not very bitter, is very heavily hopped, and tastes an awful lot like the

Cascades are like 7% AA on the higher end. That's like 45 IBUs calculated, not even accounting
for the fact that yeast is gonna reduce a lot of that and its a dark beer in the first place.
