So my first attempt is waiting to be bottled, greatly underpitched it initially and it developed a crazy pineapple juice flavor.

I love the flavor so much I'm going to be trying an imperial version

.5LB of 2-row pale malt
.5LB of CaraPils malt
.5LB of flaked oats
.5LB Munich malt.

10LB light liquid extract
3LB Dextrose @10min (is this to much?)

1oz Magnum @ 60min (or split it up .5oz @60 and .5oz @15?)

Capsule of Servomyces

will be pitching using some of the slurry from my first batch of mo betta that's sitting waiting to be bottled

was also planning on using 24oz black cherry concentrate at flameout to give it an extra kick

bumppppp

beer calculus says this recipe will net me 10.5% ABV

1.105 OG, and 1.026 FG

62.2 IBU if doing .5oz magnum @ 60 and .5oz @15min
or
83.2 IBU if doing 1.0oz @60min

should i aim for less IBU? the original recipe for betta bretta is only 12 IBU

It you are going for the flavor/taste profile of Mo Betta Bretta and it only has 12 IBUs then I would definitely use less. If you want to experiment, then use more.

no my initial mo betta clone was WLP 645 Brett C. and i underpitched by a huge amnt which i think contributed to the pineapple flavors coming out so much.

took some slurry from that batch to ferment my imperial black cherry version
