I brewed it, but it was way too ambitious. Anyway, totally shorted the OG. It will be beer, but will not resemble the intended beer. Once I get my equipment up to par, I will try it again.

Yes, it is updated. Haven't got it made yet though.

Check the addition times, amounts, and boil size. Also, most of the stone beers have a 90 minute boil so the hop additions will want to be adjusted to match. Using extract, you usually have a smaller boil size and add water going into the carboy. The smaller boil size can effect hop utizalation. See if these things are correct and if adjustment on these things in beer smith can help with the IBU's.

I would probably consider the 90 min boil to help ensure better efficiency with the large grain bill (doesn't matter for extract).

I am finally going to brew this today or tomorrow morning. I decided to just do a 1/2 batch for now so I can work on round 2 sooner. I will keep the thread updated.

Yes, thanks. I may be trying a partial mash based on your recipe the first week of January.

I got this brewed Friday. I came up about .002 short on OG. I am thinking about boiling up a bit of sugar and adding it after primary fermentation, but will wait and see where the final gravity ends up before doing that. Here is what I did, it is basically just a scaled down version of post #1:

Batch Size: 3.25 gal

Brewhouse Efficiency: 75.0 %
Actual Efficiency: 73.4 %

0.50 lb Carafa III (525.0 SRM) Grain 4.1 %
0.50 lb Chocolate Malt (350.0 SRM) Grain 4.1 %
1.00 oz Columbus (Tomahawk) [14.00%] (60 min) Hops 61.2 IBU
1.25 oz Citra [12.40%] (15 min) Hops 33.6 IBU
2.00 oz Citra [12.40%] (1 min) Hops 4.7 IBU
1.00 oz pacific jade [9.00%] (1 min) Hops 1.7 IBU
1.50 oz Nelson Sauvin [12.50%] (Dry Hop 7 days) Hops -
0.50 lb Candi Sugar, Dark (275.0 SRM) Sugar 4.1 %
1 Pkgs California Ale (DCL Yeast #S-05) [Starter 2500 ml] Yeast-Ale

Beer Profile Estimated Original Gravity: 1.102 SG
Measured Original Gravity: 1.100 SG
Estimated Final Gravity: 1.027 SG (hoping for 1.018 - 1.020)
Estimated Color: 58.0 SRM
Bitterness: 101.2 IBU (60.0-110.0 IBU) Alpha Acid Units: 9.1 AAU
Mashed temperature: 151 F

I will report back in a month or so.

I've had my eye on this since you started the thread. Can't wait to hear the results so I can order ingredients if it's successful. Good luck!
