I can't get the Recipator give me accurate numbers. I ran the numbers manually using Tinseths equations and they don't jive. Not sure if I trust the website.

Here is the formula I use

Here is a good read about calculating IBU's. I have always done all mine longhand, without that fancy software.

Ok I decided on a recipe and I'm going to brew up my first partial mash this weekend. Here it is:

2lbs American Crystal Malt 40
4lbs Pale Malt (2-row)

3lbs Light DME

Cascade Hops (assuming 6%aa for now)
1.25oz 60min left
1.25oz 20min left
0.5oz 6min left
2oz dry hop at 2 weeks

Pete Moss 2 min left

Yeast 1056

I calculated IBU 40, OG 1.050 based on my spreadsheet.

I'm planning on buying a 5gal circular cooler and building a lauter tun with copper pipping as recommended in some of the other posts. 60 min mash with batch sparge at 170F. I haven't calculated my sparge amounts yet.

Oh and I just got a turkey fryer so I can do a full 5 gallon boil.

Recipe looks good. The only question I might have is, why 2lbs of crystal? I was under the impression that more than about 1lb is excessive lighter styles such as an APA. Hopefully the more knowledgeable minds will chime in on this topic. Also, is that Irish Moss (not pete moss)?

Yeah irish. I had a recipe that called for 1 and 2 so I just doubled it so I wouldn't have to use as much DME. Let me know if thats a bad idea.

Here's my recipe after some tasting with my LHBS and some wild-ass guessing combined with what I could find online. This is in secondary and should be taste-worthy in about 1month:

5gal
OG: 1.058
IBU: 44
SRM: 8.3

Malts:
2# Pale Malt - 2row
1.5# Munich Malt
1# Crystal 30L
above in a "mini-mash"

Then added a total of 4.5# of Briess light LME in two steps during boil. 1.5# at beginning to aid in hop utilization and 3# near end of boil.

Irish Moss at 15min remaining

My LHBS store shorted 1/2 oz of Cascade so I had to compensate with Saaz

Hops:
1.5oz Cascade at 60min remaining
.66oz Cascade and .25oz Saaz at 15min remaining
.66oz Cascade and .25oz Saaz at 0min remaining steeped at flame-out for 3min.
1oz Cascade dry-hopped.

See my sig for the details of my first clone attempt. Not sure how much of a dead-ringer it will be, but it should be a fine PA.

It's been in the bottles for about 3 weeks. I've tasted a couple and its a little fruity so I'm giving it a few more weeks. The same thing happened to an IPA I did and after about 4 months in the bottles it was great. Other than that it turned out well.

I took a trip to CO about a month ago and picked up some real Mirror Pond so I can do a taste test, and remind myself what it tasted like. Its not perfect but I don't know where I went wrong.

Drop the Crystal 40 to 1# and increase your 2-row by 1# or include 1# of 2-row Munich Malt.

I went with some Munich Malt due to the significant (but doesn't linger) malty taste in the brew.
