You're welcome. If you've done 350 ppm sulfate, 50 ppm more isn't really that much. Go for it and see if you like it.

I did.

This is the water profile I used (http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f12/heady-topper-can-you-clone-390082/index62.html#post6263899).

I steeped at ~180F for ~30 mins. Pitched all hops in loose. Removed...

The beer selection in Townsville and Cairns was pretty bad (for hoppy beers). It was a little better in Sydney and Melbourne, so you should get down there :)

For me, my IPAs have gone to the next level when I started playing with water chemistry (increasing the sulfates) and getting the whirlpool/hop stand right. For the whirlpool, I now cool to ~180F,...

Has anyone tried lowering the starting gravity on this to bring the alcohol down to an IPA level? How would I go about doing that? Would I lower all the grains and dextrose? I'd like to keep most...

Others have mentioned not dropping the pressure, so I have been keeping it around 11-12 psi that I keep it at and filling has been fine. In fact I get so little foam that I find I have to swirl the...

So I got to taste one of the bottles where I followed the BYO recipe above (except I halved the cardamom). It is very thick and creamy like creme brulee stout, but that's where the similarities end....

I used 15.5 g gypsum (2.11 g/gal) in my batch. I was targeting 400 ppm sulfate (my water has 54 ppm). I also added some epsom salt also. It was great and got a 3rd place out of 37 beers. That that...

Sorry if I was flippant, but for me I just don't care too much about a few % on ABV. Especially for a big beer like that. Maybe 1-2% might be significant on a 5% beer, but not a 12% beer.

I think it was Beer Smith that put them in that order when he copied and pasted. Glad you got it figured out.

I think the only confusing thing is it shows the FWH at 20 mins but that's just for the IBU calculation. With BIAB and FWH, just add the hops as soon as you pull the bag and start heating. There is...

I got 3rd out of 37 IPAs using this recipe in a local home brew competition. It's the first time I ever placed in the few competitions I've entered. I was pretty happy with that.
