Its tough one. I want to follow the byo clone but nothing like second guessing the recipe and using your experiences. I'm using crystal 20, and adding Munich malt to get that noticeable malt note. Does anyone know what the approx IBUs? 100+ doesn't tell me enough. Thanks. What for origin of magnum do you think stone uses?

Not sure on how many IBUs to shoot for but Stone now uses Columbus instead of Magnum to bitter the vast majority of their beers.

Since when? I heard that Columbus is listed on sight now as well. One other comment on this thread mentioned that he used Columbus and believes type of bittering hop was off and it could be that its magnum. Is it possible to pick up on type of bittering hops used?

Hey suggestions on bottling? I don't have the equipment to keg it or cask it so what should I prime it in the bottle it with dextrose or DME?

I used corn sugar. It's good. 3.75oz to 4.75 gal

OK mine has been bottled a couple of weeks now. When I open the bottles they foam straight out of the bottle and onto the floor or counter. I chilled it for just a couple of hours. The house has been in the upper 70's where it's been sitting for 2 weeks.

Will this subside or will they be this foamy forever?

Taste is awesome.

The ones I opened within the first week were perfectly carbed. Used the same 4 oz of priming sugar as I do all my beers.

Just my theory I'm working on...

How long did you ferment?
What was the OG and FG?

Did you move the beer to a secondary fermentation?

It will be that foamy forever. If anything, it will get worse. At least in my experience with over-carrbed beer. You should try out something like iBrew Master for smart phones to get sugar volumes. Different styles require different amounts of sugar.

Well good news. I think the foaming was just a temperature issue. The house had been super-warm while we were out of town. Since the beer was in the house it was also quite warm.

I only had it in the fridge for a few hours.

I've had a few more since, all of which spent at least 24 hours in the fridge. None have foamed up at all.

Additionally, there is a good article on the BYO website discussing carbonating, specifically bottling. It talks about residual carbonation from fermentation as well as the various levels typical to different styles. I always believe it is best to understand the process used rather than simply ONLY relying on a computer to tell you what to do.
