I've found that the Daniels formula estimates much higher IBUs for a given amount of alpha acid units than Tinseth. I've been using Tinseth for a while, and found that the estimated IBUs seem quite short. When I run the same numbers through the Daniels formula, they seem a little more accurate (for my process anyway). Sometimes there is a difference of up to 7 or 8 IBUs between the two.

On tap:
1. DIPA 2. Hefe 3. ESB 4. Traditional Bock 5.[Nitrogen] ESB
1. Red Lager 2. Red Lager 3. none 4. none 5. none 6. none
1. Brett Ale 2. Lambic 3. Lambic 4. none 5. none
About 27 gallons of beer & 3 gallons of mead
Kegged & conditioning:
Bourbon Barrel Imperial Oatmeal Stout, Bock, DIPA, Dry Stout x2, Pils x2
