Got this in the FV right now, had to make looooaaads of subs though as a lot is not available in UK, so I guess it is really not the same recipe at all, but the basis is there

Briess 2 row subbed for Pilsner

Briess crystal subbed for Carahell 10l crystal

Honey subbed for Melanoidin

unfortunately Atahnum is not available here right now so used made a departure and subbed Nugget, as I love its spiciness, there is already a lot of citrusy hop in here so a little extra pine and spice would not go amiss

OG came in at 1.079, as I am pretty effecient so I corrected to 1.073 before pitching

the smell that comes out of the FV every time it bubbles is just amazing and I am really really excited to taste this when done.

finished fermenting, went all the way down to 1.012 so is bang on 8% alcohol -- really glad I corrected down to 1.073 or it would have been crazy strong. Wow, it has obviousy come out drier than I expected but I tasted the hydrometer test and after dry hopping this is going to be some amazing beer.

Thanks for the recipe my man, much appreciated.

Just got done making this...had to sub the amarillo hops as lhbs didnt have any. So i filled in with centenials...also added another half oz on the 2nd addition. My OG came out at 1.084 so this is going to be a super powerful beer. I just hope it tastes as well as the real stuff!

so today when starting another brew I realized that I had an extra pack of cascade hops. well due to me not paying attention...most likely due to some homebrew... haha I realized I only added 1 oz at 20 min instead of 2. I have some time, but I would like some opinions as whether to just throw this extra oz in when dry hopping or just realize its gone and leave it alone. I don't want to overpower it on the dry hop which is what I am concerned with. so anyone...any input?

I wouldn't sweat it. The amount of hops used and the IBUs that would come from one ounce of cascade (@20 min) would be relatively not noticed. No worries. And don't fear the amount of dry hops. Some big IPA's need the over-the-norm amount of DH to help round out the intense bitterness. To me a Pliny clone sample is almost undrinkable before dry hopping, but like this brew, taste like golden nectar afterwords.

so are you suggesting that i throw the extra oz in with the dry hop? or just leave it out and use it for another batch later on?

I'd just leave it out. I doubt anyone would be able to tell the difference Save it for the next brew!!

Brewed this up last week. OG 1.068. FG got a little to low 1.012. Used pacman yeast and have been getting 82-83 attenuation with it. Prob not a clone anymore but should be a good ipa.
