I know. I have beersmith. Just saying that I doubt the calculations (through no fault of the program) are really that accurate anyway. Plenty of problems (measurement, aging, etc) to go around. I'm a...

I ended up brewing the recipe as written in the OP. My propane burner blew out at sometime during the boil when I went to go make a sandwich. Since my IbUs were going to be wacky anyway, I just went...

About to start the boil. Now I'm tossing around going 20,15,10,flame out. Hmmm. Whatever. I'll probably decide when I do it. That tends to be the pattern. :D

My last ipa was fwh, 15, flame out, dh. I liked it, but I want this one to have a firmer bitterness, along with good flavor. And hopefully some "punch you in the face" dh aroma. I'm thinking I might...

I don't really know what I'm getting into with the debittered. I've not used it, only black patent, but I saw a pound or so of debittered used in many black IPAs. I figured the flavor contribution...

I don't know that I would say it tasted like a barleywine, but it sure was no BDSA. I'm not really concerned about where it would fit in a competition. I just wondered why a barleywine. I'll probably...

Belgian barleywine

So, I'm still trying to get a handle on why beers fall into certain categories, but not others. I'm drinking a (wonderful) brew from Jackie O's in Athens, Ohio that is a Belgian barleywine aged in...

I've brewed more centennial blond than any other single recipe. It's always a hit with craft beer people as well as BMC people. Pretty accessible to everyone. I brewed 10 gallons for a wedding and...

The answer is obviously dependent on the person and what they are trying to accomplish or what works for them. If I'm going to repitch the yeast in 2-3 weeks, I don't wash it, I just pour it into a...

Williamette/Mt Hood

Anyone tried this combo before? I'm thinking about a bready, malty, APA without citrus. Maybe some Goldings too? It's just what I have on hand.

Cool. I'm calculating my FWH as 20 min additions, is that how it is done? So, I think I'll just up the FWH to 2 oz. That will put me at 44 IBUs for the FWH and 81 IBUs overall.

I did want this to...

Resin-y IPA

I've always been a fan of the resin/dank characteristics of some IPAs, and I wanted to try making one. Although I drink a lot of them, I've only brewed one IPA before, so I lack some experience here....
