Brewed today. Almost hit my marks. BIAB style in an 11 gallon kettle.

OG-1.060
Brewday went pretty good. I am oxygenatin the wort right now and going to pitch 1.5 packets of S-04, trying to get my final gravity a bit lower than 1.018 or so. Hope it works. I prefer a little drier style. Maybe Ill use a cleaner finishing yeast next time, but this is what I have right now.

Hydro sample smells great. All whole leaf Citra that seemed to absorb quite a bit of wort. Tried to squeeze some of it out. Ended up with about 5.75 gallons into the fermentor. We shall see!!!

Cheers.

Your post (and location - I'm in SF) are eerily similar to mine. I brewed it Saturday - BIAB in 11 gallon kettle w/whole citra hops also - (Columbus pellets used as FWH for bittering though).

I went with While Labs 007 (Dry English) because it is more attenuative and had some saved from a previous batch...

Haha. Kind of ironic.

I used Warrior for 60 minute addition for bittering. Didnt want to waste the precious Citra for bittering. Maybe we can trade a bottle and compare. I mashed a tiny bit low at 151-152. I wanted to d othis also to try and get it to finish a little drier/ cleaner.

Do the hop additions in this recipe have the be scaled up to use all whole leaf instead of pellet? I stopped in my LHBS today was able to get two pounds of citra whole leaf for $14.99 a pound. No pellets though. I have only ever purchased pellet hops so this will be new for me.

Here is the extract/PM conversion:

Batch Size: 5g
Boil Volume: 3g

6.00 lb Extra Light Dry Extract (3.0 SRM) Dry Extract 70.6 %
1.00 lb Munich Malt - 10L (10.0 SRM) Grain 11.8 %
0.50 lb Carafoam (2.0 SRM) Grain 5.9 %
0.50 lb Caramel/Crystal Malt - 60L (60.0 SRM) Grain 5.9 %
0.50 lb Melanoiden Malt (20.0 SRM) Grain 5.9 %
1.00 oz Citra [12.40%] (60 min) Hops 25.1 IBU
0.75 oz Citra [12.40%] (First Wort Hop) Hops 12.5 IBU
1.00 oz Citra [12.40%] (15 min) Hops 12.4 IBU
1.00 oz Citra [12.40%] (10 min) Hops 9.1 IBU
1.00 oz Citra [12.40%] (5 min) Hops 5.0 IBU
1.00 oz Citra [12.40%] (1 min) Hops 1.1 IBU
3.00 oz Citra [12.40%] (Dry Hop 10 days) Hops -
SafAle English Ale (S-04)
or
Wyeast 1968

This is assuming a 3g boil, so if you can do a full boil remove the extra oz of hops at 60minutes.

Ferment at 65F for 7-10 days

The FWH addition's IBUs are calculated as a 20 minute addition to better calculate the perceived IBUs. They are boiled the whole 60 minutes.

This recipe has had favorable results with both S-04 and WY1968. For more information here is the original thread from the Recipes/Ingredients section:

The hop weights are all the same wether its whole leaf or pellet. You will just notice that when you weigh them out, the whole leaf hops take up a LOT more space than pellets would. They also absorb a LOT more water/ wort than pellet hops do. So plan for that. Not sure how much exactly, but I figured about .25 gallon in hops alone. I ended up with a bit more wort, but that also means more beer. Yay!

I think you will like the end result though!! Have a good brew day.

I am almost ready to bottle. If I have 5.5 gallons to bottle, how much priming sugar? 4oz?

According to http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f81/edwo...felwein-33986/, at room temp (assuming 70):

2.75 volumes (I like my IPA's carb'd high)

Sugar Type Weight
Glucose (dextrose or corn sugar) 5.7 oz
Sucrose (table sugar) 5.4 oz
DME 55% AA (eg: Laaglander) 13.1 oz
DME 70% AA (eg: Northwestern) 10.3 oz
DME 75% AA (eg: Munton & Fison) 9.6 oz
