Shirley is Furious

Taking a bit from everyone, and getting closer to the IBU's listed on the can (99 IBU). I'm an engineer. I can't help but adjust everything. I'll probably try to dry hop at least 3 gallon of this in the keg..... I like to mix it up with my larger batches - yeast and hopping style. I usually split the fermentation with 2 yeasts, keg 3 gallons from each "half," and bottle the rest of that.

Brewer: Rusty Kettle Brewing
Beer: Shirley is Furious
Type: All grain
Size: 12.5 gallons
Color: 29 HCU (~15 SRM)
Bitterness: 94 IBU
OG: 1.066 FG: 1.013
Alcohol: 6.6% v/v (5.2% w/w)
Wyeast 1335 6.5 gal
Safale S-04 6 gal (I like the way this seems to bring out the hops for me - YMMV)

Grain:
23 lb. Golden Promise
1 lb. Munich
1 lb. Crystal 60L
4 oz. Torrified wheat (head retention)
3 lb. Belgian CaraMunich

Mash: 80% efficiency
Mash Temp: 152F 90min
Boil: 75 minutes 13.5 gallons

Hops - adjusted for my utilization (pellets in a bag):
3 oz. Warrior (15.8% AA, 60 min.)
.75 oz. Simcoe (12.2% AA, 20 min.)
1 oz. Amarillo (7.5% AA, 20 min.)
.75 oz. Simcoe (12.2% AA, 15 min.)
1 oz. Amarillo (7.5% AA, 15 min.)
.75 oz. Simcoe (12.2% AA, 10 min.)
1 oz. Amarillo (7.5% AA, 10 min.)
.75 oz. Simcoe (12.2% AA, 5 min.)
1 oz. Amarillo (7.5% AA, 5 min.)
1 oz. Simcoe (12.2% AA, 0 min.)
1 oz. Amarillo (7.5% AA, 0 min.)
2 oz. Simcoe (DH)
2 oz. Amarillo (DH)
2 oz. Ahtanum (DH)

Reason: Added another .5 lb of 60L (inadvertantly - my 5 and 7 year old were helping me crush)

I looked at this and couldn't help but notice that it seems like you're aiming for 6g yield. With almost 28lbs of grain either you forgot to say something or annotated it incorrectly, like maybe you meant a 10 gallon batch.

I'm using a 6.5g and a 6g carboy. Looking at 12.5 gallons. What am I missing?

My side by side tasting went well. I have found a few process issues that I need to clean up before brewing it again though. I think the recipe is very close, but I am getting some astringency issues from my mash and sparge. I also forgot to use whirlfloc in this brew. My next brew I am really going to focus on my mashing and sparging Ph and gravity of my last runnings. My friend turned my recipe into a partial mash and his tastes almost right on. Mine was much more bitter than Furious.

My ability to read lol. I didn't read the split and the 12g it could have been the beer talking too.

I just racked this over and added the DH. I have to say, the 1335 tastes a lot closer to the Furious than the S-04, even w/o the DH. I'll post back when I bottle and drink.

BTW, I used the 2nd runnings for 2.5 gallons of a simple Saaz light beer. Tastes surprisingly like PBR - 1.028OG, 1.004 FG.

Well...what's the verdict on all these recipes? Seems like everyone is damn
Close on the hop bill but the grains-not so much. Who thinks they have them
Exactly right and has proven it by brewing it? I love me some furious and would
Like to clone it spot on if possible (can't get it at all in Colorado).

Windsor, Colorado? When I first looked at your location, I thought it was Windsor, Ontario (acrooss the river from us....). Mine is still Dry hopping in the secondary, though the 6 gallons with the 1335 was getting close during racking. I will keg/bottle next week.

If you are in Ontario, come on over!

I just had a very fresh pint of furious, I detected some summit hops in there and if I didn't know better, I would swear that there is some chinook....in addition to the ammarillo
