Thought so too, but nope, both use the same 18.5% for Summit and 12% for Horizon.

Could it be a utilization thing with the 60 min bittering additions in a 6 gallon batch vs a brewhouse batch? I doubt it, but just thinking out loud

Brewing this tonight, but with the hop rates from the podcast. If I use the IBUs listed in the recipe here I calculate (beersmith2, Rager) close to 55IBUs; if I cut back to the rates in the podcast, I get about 46IBUs which is what the target is on the Lagunitas IPA packaging.

Hydro sample shows 1.026, a bit on the high side, but I ended up fermenting closet to 64 than 66 or 68. Sample smells amazing and taste good. Dry hopping now.

Brewed this 6 weeks ago. I used US-05. 1 week @ 66, then 2 weeks @70. Dry hopped for 7 days in primary, then bottled.
OG 1.057
FG 1.011
It is delicious. I don't know how this compares to the original. I plan to find out this weekend.
The beer is actually more clear than it looks in the photo.

Here's mine... still can't find any in bottles around town to compare. From my recollection, I think I'm a bit high on the IBU side, but still a great drinker. The aroma is just phenomenal on this one; great hop and yeast complement.

Brewing this tomorrow. It's crazy how expensive this beer is considering the number of hop varieties and the fact that I don't have bulk for any of them. @ $2 per oz, it's between $14-$18 just for the friggin hops.

However, it's still cheap in comparison to the real thing.

Brewed this tonight, like everyone I had skepticism about the hop amounts, but I know Lagu IPA pretty well, and since the hops early in the boil are high AA, I can believe the hopping rate is going to be correct. I love this beer, I can't wait to have five gallons in the keg of it to drink from!

Funny enough, this is still sitting in the fermenter. I need to keg this ASAP.

Still smells fantastic.


Can you hammer a six-inch spike through a board with your pen!s? A girl's got to have her standards.

Not a huge fan, but decent nonetheless. I'd improve this a bit, while staying somewhat true to the original beer, yet at the same time simplifying the recipe... something like this:

75-77% efficiency
3-4 week primary, with dryhop included
7.5 gallon, 60 minute full volume boil
6.0 gallon batch
1.058 - 1.061 OG
< 1.014 FG
5.9-6.3% abv
7 SRM

11 lbs US 2-row
1 lb wheat malt
1 lb munich 10L
3/4 lb crystal 40

(Mash at 153 F for 60 min - 1.5 qts/lb grain - then batch sparge)

25-30 IBUs Summit at 60 min
10-15 IBUs Horizon or Centennial at 30 min
10-15 IBUs Williamette at 30 min
1.50 oz. Cascade at flameout (20 min whirlpool steep)
1.00 oz. Centennial at flameout (20 min whirlpool steep)
1.50 oz. Cascade dryhop for 7 days
1.50 oz. Centennial dryhop for 7 days

(7.5 oz. total hops for 53 IBUs give or take, with some additional IBUs from the flameout addition)

Wyeast 1968 at 64F, later increased to 68 F
(74-77% attenuation is definitely possible)
