I assume you mean with the sensor floating in free air. I don't wan to use that setup because free air will be a couple degrees cooler than my beer during active fermentation. If I did that, I would...

I am planning on a mix (8% RB and 4% chocolate) and I thought I had the chocolate picked out (Briess Dark Chocolate, 420L). Your comment about Biress has me second guessing though. I have heard that...

I didn't mean to dismiss the refractometer issue, but just wanted to make sure the OP knows good pitching rate guidelines (since the last 2 batches used 1 smack pack per 5 gallons).

Why wouldn't the starch convert? I'm pretty sure the enzymes in the malt would break it down to something fermentable.

I forgot to add, I doubt the baking powder had the same effect on the pH as the baking soda would have. Either way, it's pretty much guess work, until you actually measure, so I doubt it made a...

That's how you do it. Brew it, evaluate, adjust, re-brew. Repeat until it's perfect. :)

That's what I'm doing with my pale ale currently. I've got the 4th iteration in the fermenter now.

If 29.4 IBUs is what you're looking for, you'll be fine. A figure that is commonly used is the bitterness to gravity ratio. You take your IBUs (29.4) and divide by your gravity points (65).

Assuming a 5 gallon batch and pellet hops, I get an OG of 1.065 and 29.4 IBUs using the Tinseth method. The IBUs might be low for that OG, but it depends on what you're going for.
