So I am in the middle of my first go at this recipe (and my first all grain recipe ever). I decided to do a double batch (possibly foolishly). But things seem to be working out nicely. I've got a 10 gal igloo cooler for a mash tun, so I had to do 2 mashes. The first runnings of the second mash are coming to an end here. Did the iodine starch conversion test on bath mashes and came out with flying colors, I haven't taken a gravity reading yet, but its good sweet wort.

Here is my dilemma: I have already pretty much filled my 18 gal boil pot without sparging the second mash. So, it's looking like I have 3 5-gal batches on my hands rather than 2. Do I need to triple the hop bill, rather than double it?

It seems dubious that I will get an answer in time to keep the show rolling, but any responses whenever would be greatly appreciated. (I am leaning towards, yes. Triple the volume, triple the hops. But its been done with only double the grain bill. So, I am slightly confused. Once, the first runnings have come to a stop, I'll take a gravity reading, and post that. Thanks again.

Cheers!

I would take a gravity reading of what you have and if it isn't too high just forget the second sparge and make double. If you use brewers friend it should be able to give you a post boil gravity from your pre boil gravity

Flower Power is one of my all time favorites, so I had to try this.
Just made a 10 gallon All Grain IPA last week and its too D#$M cold out to do another so I did an extract....

5 Gallon Recipe:

6.3 Lbs Northern Brewer Superstructure LME
4 Lbs Briess Golden Light DME
1 Lbs Carapils
4 oz Honey Malt

HOPS:

1 oz Centennial @ 60
1 oz Amarillo @ 35
1 oz Simcoe @ 30
1 oz Ahantum @ 20
2 oz Cascade @ 10
1 oz Chinook @ 5

2 packets dry US 05 pitched at 73 f

Will dry Hop 1 oz each; Amarillo, Chinook, Simcoe

BeerSmith has IBUs at 141.8 (yikes), set OG at 1.076 (mine nailed it exactly).

Boiled the DME 60 mins and the LME only 20......Bubbling away nicely after a few hours.

Will report back with results.

Would love to see how this turns out with the malt choice.

The beer turned out outstanding! Perfectly balanced. Just the right amount of bitterness to maltiness, with a hint of sweetness. To say it is Hoppy is an understatement.

I originally thought it was too sweet, but after letting it age for about 10-14 days it is great. A little darker than the original and to be honest, not as aromatic. But an overall great beer.

The NB Superstructure extract is great for IPAs and I will use it again.

Good to hear! I have another batch of this going in the fermentation chamber right now. I loved the first batch I made so I had to make it again. This time I was happy to find more of the hops I wanted so hoping it comes out even better this time!
