Notty having problems? There was a long time ago; is it happening again?

Edit - Oh, and BTW, US-05 is just fine with this, similar to Knottingham, at least when either are femented at the lower end of their temperature ranges. S-04 has more esters and tastes different. I don't really recommend it for this, but YMMV.

Example: If the recipe calls for 1 oz of 6.6% Cascade, multiple the quantity by the AA. So, 1 x 6.6 = 6.6.

Then take the 6.6 and divide by the AA of your Cascade: 6.6 / 5.0 = 1.32.

So basically you have to use 1.32 oz of the 5.0% Cascade to achieve the same AA as the 6.6% Cascade.

There ar a few calculators here: http://www.jimsbeerkit.com/hop_calcu...#hopweightcalc The one you are intersted in is the last one.

I am assuming I would do that with all additions, not just bittering correct?

Thinking of brewing this with a .75 oz addition of juniper berries with 15 minutes left in the boil. I'll most likely substitue the bittering hops with magnum just because I have a lot of magnum, but will keep the flavor and aroma hops Cascade

Thinking about brewing this beer on Friday, can't seem to find any Crystal 10 though. I do however have some Caramalt extract from Morgan's, and I've heard it's similar to Crystal 10. Think I can use that instead?

I'm getting a 5.75% ABV and only 22 IBU when entering the recipe in beersmith. I'm thinking of reducing the alcohol to about 4.5% and adding .25 oz Perle to get the bitterness close to 30 IBU. Any thoughts? The 22 IBU value seems low to me.

Just brewed this one up today, and it was a good day, first time I hit all my numbers dead on during an AG brew

BeerSmith predicted 22 IBU's for this one for me as well, however BeerSmith also specifies a 20-40 IBU range for an American Pale Ale, which this falls under. I'm guessing this won't be a particularly bitter beer, but I also don't think it is supposed to be either.

And assuming this one ferments down to BeerSmith's predicted gravity, mine will be at 5.79% ABV

Anyway, after all the responses to this recipe, I am very excited for this one to be ready to drink!
