Went to make this and the LHBS didn't have crystal and told me to sub tettnang instead, That sound right to you guys? Also what IBU's should i be shooting at to scale to with this beer?

I'm not an expert but crystal is a steeping grain (malt) while tettnanger is a hop so at least to me it doesn't make sense.

edit: nevermind, upon further research there is a crystal hop that I've never heard of. The website I saw listed substitutions as: Mt. Hood, Hersbruck, French Strisselspalt, Liberty, Hallertau

Made a High test knock off of this and it turned out GREAT. Only 2 weeks in the bottle and the first glass was amazing.

I fermented at 70. This is prob one of the best beers I've mad so far. Very good mouth feel for a high ABV take on it.

I made a Belgian Wit with Willamette and saaz, but I really want to try another with some candi sugar and also white labs belgian wit yeast; I used Safale S-04 in my first try. I am hoping this will come out a little bit more smooth then my first try with the liquid yeast the second time around.

Im planning on doing this recipe this coming weekend and have already purchase all the ingrediants. I see it calls for 6lbs of the LME. THe container i purchased is a 7lb container. I am guessing that is a standard size. What do people do with the left over pound? would it change the outcome much if you added it?
