Feel free to send them my way... I love this stuff!

Once more resurected.

I ordered up my ingredients last night, but in the hours of reading through this thread till my eyes were bleeding, I could not find a Version1 and Version2 recipe.

Is the recipe in post 4 or 5 now updated to as V2?
I think I'll only use 4oz vanilla first go round.

I did see somewhere it was stated the IBU's came in at 15 according to some software. Beersmith shows it at 35 with 1oz/.5oz/.5oz hop schedule. Bumping it to 1oz of all puts it up to 45 or so. Is this right?? Doesn't sound sweet to me that high.

1 oz 5.5% cascade, 60 min - 13 IBU
.5 oz 4% saaz, 20 min - 2.9 IBU
.5 oz 4.5% tettnang, 0 min - 0 IBU

Total - 15.9 IBU

I came up with this using Beersmith, so I have no idea how you could come up with that number.

I've got 1oz Cascade @ 5.5% giving me 19 IBU
.5oz Saaz @ 5.8% (from package) giving me 6.1 IBU
.5oz Tettnang @ 4.5% giving me 0 IBU

And Beersmith says 35 IBU's Total..

That's where I get it...

Yea I know it's 25, and beersmith shows 35.. Something's not right obviously..

Estimated OG is 1055

Just checked my other recipes and they all add up correctly... Just this one is about 7-8 IBU's off for some reason.

Ok.. I take out all the hops and get 0 IBU

Add only .5oz Saaz, shows 6.1 IBU in the list, but shows 8.5 below for total IBU.
Add only 1oz Cascade, shows 19 IBU in the list, but 26.5 below for total IBU.

WTF is up with that??

Wierd, can't help you there. BeerSmith (Brad) could probably help you out, he's an HBT member.

Well even BeerTools Pro comes up with a 26.4 bitterness. I don't know how you guys are ending up with 15 or 16.

I'm gonna hope it comes out right this weekend..

I just made this an bottled on 5/4/08. I used the recipe on the 5th post of this thread. The warning is clear, but let me reiterate - if you put 4oz of vanilla in just before bottling; it is VERY STRONG. I just had one again tonight, about 7 weeks after bottling, and it is still overpowering. Anything else I eat or drink tonight is going to taste like vanilla. If I make this again, it'll be with 2oz of vanilla before bottling, not 4. Just my 2 cents; if the vanilla ever mellows, I think it'll be a great beer - especially with dessert.
