This recipe looks amazing to me! But im a little worried about this. I might need to tell the gf to go stay at her moms for a couple days

Quick question: how long for the steep?

I always steep my grains for 30 min. It's been awhile since I brewed this but I would throw the hops in after the grain bag is removed, the dme is mixed in, and you are heating the worth up.

What is the boil volume for this hop schedule?
2.5? 5.0?

You probably know more than me but I always try and boil as much as I can to improve hop utilization. I think my starting boil volume was somewhere around 5 gal which ended up around 4 by the time I got it in the fermentor

Brewed this 9 days ago and just racked to the secondary last night. The krausen was thick at the top and it smelled amazing. My only worry is that it is very cloudy, but I am hoping it will settle and clear up while in the carboy. My starting gravity was 1.092. I cannot wait to drink this one!

We put the recipe into Beersmith and came up with 132 IBU with a 4 gallon boil. SG was 1.077

Transferred to secondary last week. When I opened the bucket I realized that my friend who had topped it off had put way too much water in it. It was sitting at about the 6.5 gallon mark. This was concerning because I was worried it would taste watered down. This was not the case. It was completely drinkable, outside of not being carbonated and warm, smelled terrific and was gorgeous in color. I was impressed at how well the Irish moss worked (it was my first time).

After the 5 gallons were racked, I decided to throw half a gallon into a growler that I had laying around with a tablespoon or so of table sugar, just to see how things would go. I mean, it would have been wasted anyways. I'll probably crack that open in a few days and drink it while I bottle the rest of the batch.

Bottling this tonight. As you may have read, I changed some of the hops. This beer smells incredible but I'm not crazy about the taste. If you can pick out the grapefruit taste found in some hops then imagine that taste x1000. This beer is tasting exactly like a bite of bitter grapefruit. Very strange. I'm hoping that once it's carbonated some of that taste will be masked. We'll see.

Have things settled down and the grapefruit taste mellowed?
