From what I've read, IPA should be dry, mashing low helps it ferment out, for a more malty style like Scotch ale, or stout, mash high. Some people even add corn sugar to dry out an IPA.

You may find that it won't be fully carbed if you bottle 4/28, and drink it 5/18. Depends on your gravity, but higher abv beers tend to take longer to carbonate. I would try to give it at least 4...

It works well enough that I have used it for 3 batches now. I always knew I would lose one of the parts to my bottling wand, but I'm surprised it didn't happen before my 53rd batch.

Maybe the link is wrong, but I didn't see any acidulated malt in that recipe. The grain bill is "70/30 mix of Pils and Munich malt", no room in there for 2 lbs of acidulated malt.

Yeah a good way to find good recipes is to look at a recipe category and then sort by Views, the good ones rise to the top, probably anything on the first page is worth making.

Admittedly I'm not up at 1.124 (or 1.132!) but these recipes all use more than 2 lbs of black or roasted malt (per 5 gallon batch):

Ever lose the plastic valve to your bottling wand?

I knew it would go missing eventually, but I never got a backup bottling wand, so I finally lost the tiny black valve. MacGyvered it with a drywall screw.

Yeah I probably would have done 1.5 packets if I remembered. I occasionally have a 0.5 packet lying around after using 0.5 to bottle up a high gravity beer that has been in primary for >4 months.
