.70 oz of a hop seems like an odd amount to use.

American Amber is a good recipe to start with. As long as you don't get an infection I'm sure it'll be delicious.

I'm getting vastly different outputs from different calculators. qBrew is the one posted above, while Beer Calculus says that I will get:

Original Gravity
1.059
(1.053 to 1.062)
Final Gravity
1.015
(1.013 to 1.016)
Color
10 SRM
(Gold to Copper)
Bitterness
8.6 HBU
30.4 IBU
(using .75oz of the chinook)


Makes doing this kind of difficult.

Why not KISS and use an ounce of chinook?

that'll take it outside of style (on some calculators, ayways...)

The IBU calculation will vary in different software depending on the method used to calculate, there are several formulas. Your IBUs will also change based on the late extract additions if any.

I would not worry about keeping the recipe 100% inside of the style guidelines. If you are slightly over or under it would be very difficult for any judge to determine. This is especially true with IBUs.
