So I am wanting to create a dusseldorf altbier ale for October and I found this recipe in another thread.
8 lbs Pilsner (2 Row) Ger (2.0 SRM) Grain 70.4 %
2 lbs Munich Malt (9.0 SRM) Grain 17.6 %
13.0 oz Aromatic Malt (26.0 SRM) Grain 7.1 %
7.0 oz Caramunich Malt (56.0 SRM) Grain 3.8 %
2.0 oz Pale Chocolate (200.0 SRM) Grain 1.1 %
24.10gm Magnum [14.00%] (60 min) Hops 48.4 IBU
28.35gm Select Spalt [4.80%] (15 min) Hops 5.2 IBU
1 Pkgs German Ale (Wyeast Labs #1007) [Starter 125 ml] Yeast-Ale
When I plug that into beersmith it says my IBUs will be 3.3??? I'm confused, there's no way it will be that low, and I know that the altbier style itself is supposed to be smooth but slightly hoppy. Just wondering if anyone knows what's going on and if they have any suggestions/ideas for a dusseldorf altbier. Thanks!
