Yeah. I am a BIAB guy. Same end product with less equipment and cleaning. I keep it simple. Work smarter not harder. Parsimony.

Beertools states the numbers as:

SRM 15.93
IBU 36.4
ABV 9.5

All the above are very close to the original numbers. I will follow up in a few weeks with some notes.
Ok...Beertools must be using Rager.

I use the default of "Beertools" for the Utilization Algorithms on Beertools. I reset it for Rager and the IBU is calculated as 39.4. Very close.

Just bottled an extract version of this. Used US-05 (had it on hand) which fermented it out to 1.016. Got a lot of pineapple aroma and flavor and much less of the other flavor additions. Will see how it ends up after it is carbed and cold.

Snuck a taste of one of these after just 8 days in the bottle, cooled for 45 min in the freezer (yes, less than ideal, I know). This is already an amazing beer! I cannot believe how well the favors blend together. A little Citra is the perfect compliment, too. I can't believe this is so smooth. This will be a beautiful beer when done. Have to say I was a little skeptical brewing this, but wow! Well done...excellent recipe!

Just got all the grains for this... picking up the spices and fruit later today and brewing day tomorrow... been wanting to try this for some time and I can't wait.. cheers

Forgive me if this was answered but when u add the chips to the fermenter do you pour in the left over rum as well or just the chips!?

Just the chips. You'll want to strain the rum into another container. While not the most drinkable, you can use it for BBQ (jerk chicken glaze maybe?) and other sundries. Just don't waste it!

I usually use a sanitized mesh bag and just pour from one container to another (mason jar?) and that's worked pretty well thus far.

So I FINALLY brewed this today! Despite having a very low efficiency (I'm still trying to dial in my keggle for BIAB), the brew day went well and this is now in the carboy doing its thing. I made this per the original recipe except for 2 modifications. I'm going to soak the oak chips (French, med toast) in Kraken rum, and I'm using Wyeast 1764 Pacman yeast since it's my house yeast. I had a little wort left over after filling my carboy so I put some in a 1 gal jug and am fermenting that with Wyeast 3864 Unibroue just for fun. I'll let you guys know how it turns out. Thanks j1laskey for the recipe, I'm looking forward to trying it!

I'm looking at doing your AG version, but I'm getting the following numbers with 15# 2-row...

OG - 1.087 FG - 1.021
SRM - 11.0
IBU - 23.57
ABV - 8.65

I'm using iBrewMaster with 75% efficiency. Any ideas why there is such a difference between our SRM's and IBU's? Thanks!

I am not familiar with the iBrewMaster software. Which algorithm do you have you hop utilization set for?

Also, have you adjusted the weigh of hops added due to AA%?
