It calcs out to 49 IBU for a 6 gallon batch with the tinseth formula. Go with what you know, and adjust accordingly though.

I brewed this yesterday with the recipe I posted above. We'll see if it's closer than the original. Brewed a 10gal batch. 1.065 OG

Down to 1.014 today. It might attenuate another point or two. Hydro sample tastes dead on. It's still going to be a couple more weeks before the verdict is out on the new recipe.

FG settled in at 1.013. So it came in at 6.8% ABV. I'm racking to secondary today. It tastes very close.

pickedup the ingredients today to brew this up tomorrow...

doing 5 gallons with saffale 05 & 5 gallons with wl007 to see if we can see the difference...

question, what's the volume of water to mash at? i did not notice that in the instructions?

thanks

Dan

I personally don't feel mash thickness makes a big difference. I mash thin (1.5qt/lb), but I can't see it making much of a difference. I'd do what you normally do?

I'm kegging mine Thursday or Friday, so we'll have results soon

It's only been in the keg one day, but the initial reports say: 100% cloned. It needs two weeks in the keg before I'll know for sure, but ya.... the revised recipe is dead on.

P.S. I was just at Four Peaks less than an hour ago, so the taste is still fresh in my memory.

Warrior instead of magnum, but yes. Which I can't see making any noticeable difference.
