Brewed this one this past weekend. I missed my SG by a considerable about. My calculations to go from all grain to partial mash were not the best when I looked back. I also instead of putting all 3oz of NB hops in at 60 min, put 2 in at 60 min and 1 in at 45. probably will have little effect but that was to bring a little more taste of those NB forward.

Also this was a sad brew... I not only lost a pint glass with some stories behind it, but also my hydrometer. and I wasn't even enjoying a home brew at the time
The "Hops Shortage" is the gods way of punishing us for not making our beers bitter enough.

Give it a go, you aren't going to hurt anything by doing so. I will say that I've had mine on tap for a few months and the wood is just starting to get tolerable. I wish I'd toned down the oak... by about 75%.
