Posted in thread: Help with/critique a Black IPA Extract recipe?? on 01-29-2012 at 03:46 PM
This is an important point to consider. I just charged blindly into remman4's recipe without
taking the time to understand what a late addition of extract (or at flameout as with this
recipe) does. So...

So, figured that one out on my own. On my previous beers I didn't aerate the wort nearly so
well and there was a lot more foam at the top that I thought there was (about a gallons worth).
After it set...

I feel as though I'm far below 13.1 SRM. more around the 9-10 area if not lower. Also, I boiled

Were you doing a full boil? 2oz of 14.2% Columbus would only be ~100 IBU if you're doing a 5

Whats the purpose of late addition extract?Edited: Removed information on hop utilization vs

Posted in thread: Imperial IPA dry hopping question on 01-24-2012 at 10:08 PM
Just a note, if you're going with 'hoppy = high IBU' then dry-hopping isn't going to do
