I'd be going for a 3-gallon boil... can you explain exactly what I'd have to calculate? Sorry, I'm still kind of a noob at this.

I added 1/2 ounce Kent Goldings for 60 minutes, then 1/2 Mt. Hood with 10 minutes left, I calculated that to be about 15 IBU. All I can say is it's pretty close to perfect for an extract brew.

Mine is slightly sweet, not much bitterness but very smooth. I love it, can't believe I finally made a decent beer. Gives me hope for things to come.

Definitely making this in the spring, by then my beer supply should be lower. Never thought I'd say this, but there's too much beer in the house now. :drunk:

I was dead on for final gravity, 1.013 so I bottled last night. Tasted nice, had a cooler fermentation so I got more clove notes than banana. Used 5 oz of corn sugar for priming, will report back...

I'm checking the gravity tomorrow, then decide if I want to let it sit longer or bottle. Might let it sit and bottle next Wednesday either way.

The airlock bubbled ferociously for the first 24 hours and has been still since, the temp in the room is between 64-65. I'll take a gravity reading this Saturday and see where it's at.
