Those IBU's are totally different from what what brewTarget lists. Even though I fully grant that Beersmith is the better software 1.1for Sterlings @ 1 min seems high to me, as does the 19+ for the 30 min addition. This is what Brewtaget lists for the same hop schedule:

0.5 oz Styrian Goldings @ 90 min. (I received 6.7% AA)
1 oz Sterling @ 30 min. (I received 9.7%)
1 oz Sterling @ 1 min. (I received .5%)

Gives a total of 16.9, which brewtarget says is 17 IBU.

Sorry - I should be more clear. When I say "I received" I meant those were the AA%s of the hops I got in the mail. To be more clear:

0.5 oz Styrian Goldings (4%) @ 90 min. = 7.5 IBU
1 oz Sterling (7.3%) @ 30 min. = 19.7 IBU
1 oz Sterling (7.3%) @ 1 min. (I received .5%) = 1.1 IBU
(see the image for reference)

That gives a total of 28.3 IBU. When you entered into BrewTarget, what AA% were you using for each hop?

Shameless bump. I'm brewing this on Friday and hoping to have the IBU issue locked down before then. It'd hate to wait a year to find out I screwed it up!

Well regardless if the calculations are right or wrong. It is ferminting and I will let you know in 8-12 months

try the calcs with 60 min boil add for the hops instead of 90. (you will boil 30 min w/o hops).
or whatever to get 15-20 ibu

My flanders were about 15 IBU and compared well with Consecration.

For the record Brewtarget is listing the Sterlings as having 4.5% on average.

I am inclined to agree with midfielder5 though. 28 IBU is going to be way to high.

Yes, looking at this on a computer vs my phone, shows that the Sterling is way high in AA% so that 30 min addition is probably where you can cut it in half (use 0.5 oz).

Agreed - I have no problem dialing it down to reach the suggested IBU range, but I assumed something had to be incorrect on my end since all the grains and everything else was portioned / sized out appropriately to fit the suggested ranges. Sounds like it might just be another small glitch in the packing of this and I just got some "extra" hops. I'm sure they won't go to waste... Thanks guys.

When planning out for my water it looks like my mash pH is going to be on the low side. Would reducing the acid malt by an ounce or two affect this in any real way do you think? Doing that would put me into the needed mash range (with the other ions balanced out correctly as well). My guess is it would be fine, but I'm not sure the purpose of the acid malt here since I'm guess alone isn't going to provide much sourness at about 4% of the grist. Your thoughts?
