Fat Bastard

We're switching to AG, and decided to use up the rest of our extract ingredients before the switch-over. We had the ingredients for a Fat Tire clone, but decided to substitute the hop schedule from an Arrogant Bastard clone to satisfy my boyfriend's hop addiction.

We used
12 oz Crystal 20L
8 oz Belgium Munich
8 oz Carapils
4 oz Victory
4 oz Biscuit
1 oz Chocolate

6.50 lbs LME
3 oz Chinook

90 min full boil w/ late extract addition and 1 oz hops at 90, 60 and flame out. Our OG was 1.043... looking forward to the last hurrah before we go to AG.

I never did much extract brewing, but if I had to guess, this is going to be way way too bitter unless I'm missing something.

Chinook is generally between 13-15% AA and adding at 90 and 60 would crank out a ton of IBU's (I don't have beersmith near me so maybe someone else can calculate it out). W/ that low of an OG, there's just not going to be enough of a malt backbone to balance all the bitterness.

If you don't have any more LME, I'd just do a 60 min boil and maybe do 1 oz at 30 min, 10 min, and flame-out. To be honest though this still may be too many IBU's. I suggest playing around with beersmith/promash a little.

We thought it may be a disaster, but we have friends who will make it disappear even if we don't like it. Plus, who can pass up the opportunity to name a beer Fat Bastard Thanks for your reply, we're still noobs.

3 oz Chinook???

*cough cough cough*

I'm choking on just the thought of that IBU rating. Man, I hope you enjoy it, but that's not for me.

Hey I love the name! The grain bill looks pretty tasty as well...there's just not enough pale malt to hit the OG needed to balance this monster out.

What would the ideal OG be? We've not strayed far from recipes, so this is a good learning experience.

At least 1.060 would be a good start.

Thank you, from here far into the future, for this graph! Thought I'd give another opportunity for someone to find use for this graph as i did.

Cheers!
