1 oz. Styrian Goldings 3.4% AA 30min
1 oz. Saaz 2.8% AA 3min
Should he scale up the hops because it's not a full boil? Or is the above taking that into account already?

No..I don't see why you would.

I bottled this 3 weeks ago. I did a tester yesterday and found very very low carbonation. I added 4.15oz of priming sugar to 4 gallons (2.7 volumes) and made sure to siphon a little yeast into the bottling bucket to help the carbing along.

My ABV is 10.75%, I'm wondering if the high alcohol content has slowed the WLP500 down a little bit. I'm storing the bottles at 68-70. I gave each bottle a little shake yesterday in an attempt to reinvigorate the yeast. I'm planning on bottle aging this for another month or two, hopefully the yeast will carb it up a lot more.

Big-ass beers like this tend to take a while to bottle condition. I'd expect about 6 weeks, and try to keep them warm (70-75). I've force carbonated mine.

Mine carbed very slow as well. After about 7 or 8 weeks it carbed to where I thought it should be. I need to brew this one again soon

I just wanted to chime in again on how well this beer turned out. I made a 6 gallon batch and bottled and let it sit for about 3 weeks and got full carbonation. My beer was also of the stronger style at over 11% or so. Turned out fantastic; recipe definitely a keeper.

Well, I guess I assumed Hurricane had a 6.5-7g boil, so his hop schedule and expected IBUs would be relative to that volume size/gravity. At a 3 gallon boil, Tom's going to end up with 10-15 IBUs, as opposed to 20-25.

My question about scaling up is whether or not Tom wants 20-25 IBUs or 10-15 IBUs.
