Ok so I have decided that I want to brew a Snake Dog IPA Clone (Flying Dog's description
)sometime in the near future and want to make sure I am converting the recipe correctly. The original recipe I am using can be found here
and calls for:
OG = 1.061
14.25# American 2-row pale
0.5# American Crystal 120L
boil 60 mins 1.25 Warrior leaf 15.0
boil 30 mins 0.75 Columbus leaf 15.4
boil 30 mins 0.75 Warrior leaf 15.0
boil 1 min 1.0 Columbus leaf 15.4
dry hop 4 days 2.0 Columbus leaf 15.4
Boil size 3gal, batch size 6 gal
Firstly for my DME I figure I will need 7# Light DME (since 61*5=305ppg , 305ppg/44ppg = 6.93#DME). Then I would keep the 120L at 0.5# and steep @155F for 30m.
However the hop schedule is where I become confused. I will also be doing a 3gal boil but my final batch size is 5gal instead of 6gal. Do I simply need to use a factor of 5/6 ? Or is there a different formula available to include boil size and batch size?
