Did anybody else buy this kit? When I calculate out the IBUs with this hop schedule it comes out to over 100. Starting gravity is 1.055 and boil volume is 6.25.

2oz Admiral 13.1% 60 Minutes 91.8 IBU
.5oz Admiral 13.1% 15 Minutes 11.4 IBU
.5oz Admiral 13.1% 5 Minutes 4.6 IBU

I contacted AHS and they stated based on their calculations the IBUs are only 50.0 Am I doing the calculations wrong?

It shows it uses Admiral and Kent Goldings on the website, are you sure it is suppose to be 2 oz. at 60 min.

Yea that's what the instructions say, the Kent Golding are used to dry hop with. Maybe I just adjust down from 2 ounces.

Kind of aggravated with the response I got from AHS that beersmith and my calculations must be wrong. I also wonder why the don't publish the IBUs of any of their recipes anywhere.

Just plugged the numbers into brewpal and got 94 IBUs
Think I'm going to just take 1 oz Admiral @60 which will give me 56 IBUs
I might add to dry hop when I see how they smell. Has anyone had experience with Admiral?

I was thinking of doing the same thing, 1 oz @60 minutes. I reached out to AHS on here and on their Facebook page and got no response. Aggravating that they won't explain why the IBUs are so high in the recipe.

Is this an extract kit? Maybe they are expecting you to do a partial boil and top off. With your numbers and a 6.25 gal boil I get 95 IBU in Beersmith from that one addition. With a 3 gal boil and topping off I get 56 IBU.
