It depends on your setup and batch size, but when I do a higher gravity brew while sticking to my usual 6 gallon boil (5 gal. batches), I have to cut my sparge volume to keep a 1.25 qt/lb strike...

No problem :) I generally use a heaping 3/4 cup, about 4.5 oz, so you should be good.

If you primed the correct amount, mixed properly, and your yeast is still alive then it should carb eventually. I usually do 3 weeks in the bottle, so hopefully after that long you'll be set.

Hi yboeilaog,

In hindsight, I think the .25 oz would give you something closer to True Blonde. What I ended up with here was slightly more bitter than Ska's, so cutting some of the Cascade would...

Technically, Tinseth's hop util. equation only takes into account boil gravity and time. The IBU equation is just IBU = AAU * Util. * 75(Constant) / (Batch Size in Gallons), so I think scaling up...

Underpitching by 100% should result in no esters or phenols whatsoever, wouldn't you agree? Ya know, since that would mean no yeast :D
