Really, 8 different hop varieties? And 6 of them are a half ounce each or less? Seems unnecessarily complicated, but maybe there's some sort of magic going on there...

I have a question about the North Star recipe from Beer Advocate (on page 2 of the thread).

The first hop addition reads:

Hops
Amount Name Form Alpha IBU Boil Time
1.00 oz. Amarillo Gold Pellet 9.40 45.6 Mash H

It was my understanding that Mash Hopping greatly reduces utilization. Where is the 45.6 IBUs coming from?

Boil 60 min:
.5 oz warrior
.5 oz magnum
.5 oz Columbus
Boil 30:
1 oz centennial
Flameout:
1 oz amarilo

I pitched with Nottingham.
I made this on March 6, dry hopped it with centennial on March 20 without racking it to a secondary and let it sit there until May 8. I've only had a few so far, but it is so tasty. My brother in law called it his favorite beer right now. I call it the Hoppicratic Oath. I'll put the entire recipe in my drop down.

New to this forum. Been brewing for a little over a month. Have an Irish Red Ale in bottles (extract kit). Turned out great. Have a hoppy red imperial IPA in the secondary (partial mash). I'm planning to do a Sculpin clone as my next brew. Hope to be doing a full grain brew in a bag in the next two weeks. I have been recovering yeast from bottle conditioned beers. I'm fortunate to be able to culture it in a microbiology laboratory, so its clean. Have a Stone IPA and a Bear Republic Racer 5. Used the Stone yeast for my Red Imperial IPA. Was planning to use the Racer 5 for this one. It is purportedly like WLP028 (Edinburgh Ale Yeast). Any opinions on that. I love the Racer 5 flavor profile.

However, I did just pick up a sampler pack of 8 22oz Ballast Point beers that has Sculpin in it. I could try to recover that one. Does anyone know if their yeast is proprietary of if it is a White Labs standard? I notice everyone is using WLP001 and they seem to have gotten that suggestion from the Ballast Point.
