Version 5 on WLP 008 and hop bursted has been a hit so far among my drinking brethren. Version 4 on the Cry Havoc was a little weird for me.

Here's PK5:

33.00 g Galaxy [14.00 %] - Dry Hop 9.0 Days Hop 21 0.0 IBUs

I'm sure the grain bill could still be played with a little and I think WLP 006 or WLP 028 might be perfect strains for this type of beer. The aroma on this beer is killer though.

Can't wait to give this a try. Brewing an iipa next so this should be a good compliment when I want to be able to have more than one on a weeknight!

You're not kidding. The difference between how I feel in the morning if I have 6 or 7 of these versus even a 7% IPA is beyond night and day.

Just put a Citra/Mosaic version of this grist in a carboy with some US05. Hit my OG right on, this mash smelled great. Will report back in a couple weeks with tasting notes.

Brewed version 2 of this recipe this weekend. The mash smelled delicous and the fermenter smelled almost like cinnamon toast crunch last night. Not sure if that is normal, but it is exciting

Hoping to brew version 2 this weekend, it sounds excellent. I love IPAs but I hate the high ABV. Thanks for posting this!

I don't understand this recipe. I just bought everything to brew 15 gallons and THEN entered it into BEERSMITH.

Beersmith shows this beer to have a 1.044 SG with 105.7 IBU's

What's going on here. The bitterness is so high it is off the chart.

I can't brew this untill someone explains this crazy hop schedule.

HELP ME PLEASE

Reason: fix

You sure your unit conversions are correct? It would help if you post what you entered so we could compare the two.

Thanks for responding.
I entered everything twice .
maybe I am wrong.
I just don't want to screw up 15 gallons.

Maybe try entering it just once

I can vouch for the recipe as posted here. Can you take a screenshot of your beer smith recipe or something?
