-Started with 2 1/2 gallons--top off using distilled water (to Original Gravity) after cooling.

-Never used Notty yeast, so I can't say for sure what kind of results you could expect. White Labs has always worked out for me, and they ferment fairly clean.

-Thanks!

So I brewed this up from the original recipe (almost) and it has been one hell of a fermentation. It's a week after and it's still very visible in the airlock seven days after brewing. I've brewed a couple IPA's but never had one bubbling away for this long. Anyone else experience this? Not complaining at all, just never expected it to have it bubble so much.

Sounds like you had some happy yeast in that case. If I remember, I think I saw bubbles for 5-6 days straight before it died down, so you should be fairly close.

I brewed my take on this yesterday. I used the original hop bill and the modified grain/extract bill from the second recipe on page 5 of this thread.

I had an OG of 1.078 and it's now happily bubbling away.

After a trip to the LHBS & an order from Northern Brewer, I finally have the ingredients for the finalized version. I wound up choosing White Labs' San Diego Super Strain for the yeast, so we'll see how this bad boy turns out within the next few weeks. Brew day, t-minus 2 days and counting...

Tried the first recipe but haven't done the second, but the one thing that stands out that may need changing is the 30 minute ahtanun addition. It's so low in AA that it's better suited for a flavor or aroma addition then a bittering addition.

Yeah, I realized that after buying the Ahtanum from my LHBS & noticed that it was only 5.2%. I might bump them down to 20-15 minutes when I brew this weekend (had to bump brew-day back as well).

Good choice! Otherwise it is almost a waste of hops in the grand scheme of this beer!

I'm giving this a go but living here in central Europe the hop choices are somewhat limited.

Also, I plugged the original hops into beersmith and the IBU was way low, like 35 ish (UNLESS I set it to a 5 gallon boil). I can only boil about 3 gallons so I find myself going crazy on the hops just to get to 80IBU.

Here's what I've put together with liberal substitutions and working with hops I already have or that I can easily order:
3oz magnum @ 15% for 60 minutes
1oz northern brewer @ 10% for 30 minutes
1/2oz perle @ 9% for 15 minutes
1/2oz cascade @ 5% for 15 minutes
1/2oz perle 9% for 5 minutes
1/2oz cascade @ 5% for 5 minutes

1oz perle dry hopped 7 days
1oz cascade dry hopped 7 days

This seems like a lot of hops especially given the recipes in this thread which seem to come from a partial boil. Am I missing something here or was the original recipe based on a full 5 gallon boil?
