Im gonna steep in 2 gallons then do a full boil. How many gallons should I start and end with for a full boil? i know the batch size is 5 gallons. I know the recipe calls for a 5 gallon batch but should I aim for a little more, like 5.25 gallons or just aim for 5 gallons?

I've chosen this recipe as my second batch after my first results were pretty successful (porter).

Bubbling quite frequently at first (more than 1/second) but now at day 4 I have zero bubbles in the airlock. Is my fermentation stuck or just working extremely slowly? I've got it around 63-64 in a water bath.

What yeast? I used US-05 and it was done pretty fast, like 3-4 days. I let it sit for another 7, dry hopped for 7 more and am drinking one right now.

So I know this is supposed to be an Amarillo IPA but a guy I know from my LHBS is selling me 4oz of 8.8% Cascades from New Mexico. I think it would be real interesting (and cheap) to brew this recipe with his hops. What do you guys think? I see no harm.

Used Safale-04 because my homebrew store was all out of the 05. Also, is the consensus that this recipe is ok for only primary fermentation? If so, leave it in thee for 2-3 weeks?

I did it 3 weeks in primary and 10 days in dry hopping (just started carbing and will be trying the dry hopped version tonight). It smells awesome, wicked aroma so I can't wait. I think 3 weeks in the primary is money.

Depends on your boiloff rate, but I use a turkey fryer and a 7.5 gallon pot that came with it. I usually start with 6.5 gallons to get 5 gallons post boil.

Some further tasting notes:

Mine has been in a keg for 3 weeks now. I did the AG version, and it feels a little thin for some reason. I've had some efficiency problems since getting my Barley Crusher, I don't quite have it dialed in.
It's my first time using Amarillo, and the grapefruit juice has certainly dialed down. It's tasty, but I think I prefered my all Centennial beer. I'm also starting to realize I prefer layered hop additions, rather than single hop beers.

Still very tasty though!
