Both batches used 7 lbs LME, so that is a bit more than 1/2 g volume. I did end up factoring it in, and made a minor adjustment to the hops based on that.

AHS Fat Tire Clone - low IBUs?

I just received the Fat Tire Clone extract kit from AHS. When I plug in the ingredients into BeerSmith, the computed IBUs are 16.5. Does that sound right?

fusels as a result of over-aeration?

In Palmer's book, he lists that <b>over-aeration</b> as a possible source of fusel alcohols, as well. That really surprised me, but I just found it in his book this past weekend.
