Awesome! I'll be brewing this up again pretty soon to try out in my recently acquired kegerator, though I might play around with more varied steeping grains (just because I can).

Nice, I'll let you know how this turns out. Did you bottle condition it at room temp for 14 days or cool condition it in a refrigerator?

Bottle conditioned @ room temperature (70-ish).

Am I missing something with the IBU's. I put this into Recipator and came up with IBU's around 1/2 what you are showing.

This sounds good. I just finished my mash tun and would like to do an AG version.

What volume did you end up with? I see you said nearly 2 cases so I assume about 10 gal.

Nope-this was a 5-gal. batch, wound up with 4.8 gallons in the bucket (I siphon like a madman).

I found out, after the fact, that those 3 were the first to be bottled, so considering I didn't stir the priming solution when blending, it was most likely just heavier sugar concentration at the base of the bottling bucket, and not an issue of using too much sugar like I mentioned above.

I think I am going to try this for my first non-kit recipe...So what is the reason for adding 8 oz corn sugar during the boil? Just to up the OG? Are the '1% alcohol boost' bags I can get from A(ustin)HB just corn sugar on steroids?

From what I remember (only ordered 1 kit from them), it's just straight corn sugar, and yes, only for the ABV boost.
