Not sure if anyone is still checking out this thread. Just wondering the est. ABV, and wondering if this is truly an imperial...? I'm on my gf's computer, so I can't access beersmith for it's estimates at the moment. Otherwise... this beer sounds great. Been looking for a true hop bomb.
Hello, this is my very first post on homebrew talk! This saturday, a friend and I are going to brew our first batch of beer. We are both hopheads and this sounds like a perfect extract recipe for us. My question is about the times listed next to the hops, I'm a little unclear about what order and when the varieties go in. Any help would be appreciated. Is this too complicated of a recipe for a first timer? Thanks!

Not to complicated if you have a timer and pay attention to it. 60min additions go in after the hot break or after it starts to boil. All other additions count down from there, ie-10min addition is 50 minutes into the boil. if there's two 60 minute additions of different hops just chuck them in together.
I tried using this recipe as a base for my own IPA.
The differences being I used different hops and 9lbs LME and 1lb DME
For some reason my OG read at about 1.121!
Fortunately I made a 1L starter but I'm not sure if that was enough. After 3 days of heavy bubbling it stopped. I checked the gravity and it was down to 1.032 and it looks like it's staying there (I've checked several days in a row)
I'm new to this (only my 3rd time brewing) but I believe it's getting close to 12% ABV.
Does this mean by yeast is "drunk"?
Should I repitch with a different type of yeast?
