Just tasted this after 10 days. My recipe was modified a bit but my of was 1.072 and my fg hit 1.018 with us05. The sample was great and I threw my dry hops right in the primary. Can't wait to drink it

I usually let it primary for around 14 days, rack to a keg or secondary, and then dryhop. I have drank it as young as about 3 weeks and it was good, but it gets really good a couple weeks later.
Skeezer.... just wondering why so long on primary? I've made this 4 times now. 1st all grain attempt is in the fermenter right now since last Sunday. My previous batches have been done in primary in 4-6 days. Using 2 pkgs of S-04. I haven't had the chance to pull a gravity reading on this batch yet but I will tonight and my guess is come Sunday I'll get the same reading.

1st batch was the best but all 3 have been good enough that it doesn't last too long around my house.
Thanks for the great recipe.

Mostly due to laziness and to let more of the yeast to drop out prior to dryhopping. Primary fermentation is usually done by 5 days or so though.

The recipe does not look to have the boil time factored into the FWH:
- 0.75 oz Citra [12.40%] (First Wort Hop) Hops 17.0 IBU***

I get 82 IBU (total) in BeerSmith when I enter .75 Citra FWH 60 min & keep all other hops additions the same.

From Brad Smith (BeerSmith author):

For a first wort hop the correct time to enter is the boil time (60 minutes for a 60 minute boil).

I'm going with .75 Citra FWH w/ 60 min boil because that's what Skeezer & others worked out as the best hop combo regardless of what the IBUs end up at.

Thanks everyone for your work on this, going to brew it this weekend - excited

Yeah, the actual ibus and "perceived" ibus are different. It seems most people agree that FWH gives a "smoother" bitterness, so the calculating as 20 instead of 60 is to reflect that. It definitely doesn't taste like an 82 IBU beer.

I got 115 calculated IBUs for a low OG IIPA with lots of late additions, and very little early additions. The real IBUs were probably only about 55-65.

The reverse can also be true. The Can You Brew It podcast for high OG "Dankness IIPA" measures only at about 45 IBUs when you plug it into brew software, but it's probably much higher than that with all of the late additions.

Flameout additions can add some IBUs, which can be more substantial if you flameout with 3-4 oz. obviously as opposed to the typical 0-2 oz.

I just tapped my attempt at this brew last night. It's awesome! Can't wait to do a side by side with the real thing. My version is definitely a tad more bitter than zombie dust. Color looks great, nice aroma, and I'm guessing it's real close. Will update after I do the side by side with the real deal.

I started in the NW Chicago burbs without treating at all. Now i am in North Atlanta (used a tsp of gypsum on the last batch). I don't have the #s handy though

Hey thanks for the recipe it looks great I love Zombie Dust..I did an extract version 2 weeks ago that's going into bottles tomorrow. I recently started going all grain last week, and plan to do a ag version of this Thursday to compare.

I am using iBrewmaster, and every time I plug the numbers in I can't get the same OG. I always come up to around 1.055 for all grain, and I think it was around the same for extract. Is the OG right for a 6 gallon batch in the recipe posted? It could just be due to the different programs, but so far I hit my extract version OG right on target, and the first AG brew I did last week was right on target too.

Am I putting something in wrong to get these numbers? I just wanted to check as I am going to get the ingredients tomorrow..should I add more 2-row to get to that target OG, or follow the recipe and have a lighter beer? Sorry if this is hard to read..it's 2:00 am and I am typing this out on my cell phone. Thanks for the help

edit: so I ran the numbers again and realized I was set to 70% efficiency...is your recipe assuming 80% efficiency? I added 2lbs of 2-row at 70% and hit the numbers right on, does this sound right? Sorry for the newb question I just started AG this last week. can't wait until this is ready!
