The clone is not a clone I would add roasted barley next time. The real one has coffee and roast notes but this clone recipe does not.

It's probably a water, process, or maltster difference that makes the difference. SN uses black malt as the only roasted grain, according to many sources (including their own website, as posted above).

I was also wondering about the roasted barley. I guess it isn't in there. I am going to make minor adjustments and brew this soon.

When I input the recipe into Beersmith it calculated the total IBU around 40, with the ounce of Magnum at 14.4% for 60min only doing 33.5 IBU (quite far off from your 54.9 IBU calculation). Any idea why this is so?

EDIT: I did plug it into an online IBU calculator and got what you calculated. Must just be a fault with the program or something.

Each program has a default value for the alpha values of hops. Find the alpha value of the hops you will use and plug that in. (ive not used brewsmith, but im sure you could locate this input just for your specific recipe somewhere in the hop addition area) Then plan your hop additions with the software in order to achieve the IBU you wish for the brew. This is one of the main advantages of using software for brewing. You can accurately clone and brew even tho your hops may be quite different.

I did crunch the numbers into the program, I've used it for a few brews already. I don't wish to fill this thread with an off-topic so we probably shouldn't carry on with finding an answer here, but take a look for yourself.

EDIT: Nevermind, switched around some of my equipment profile settings and now it is where it should be!
