Did you set the total efficiency in the formula to 65%? BYO uses that rate for all their recipes unless noted. Then once you have it entered with that rate, you can use the "scale" option to adjust to your own brewhouse efficiency. Also note that it goes for six row pale malt, not two.

I just entered myself and only off slightly on OG, ABV and SRM I am always off to BYO. Here's the log:

Brewed this last month using the BYO recipe from my last post above but at 70% efficiency. Just cracked the first bottle after two weeks for carbonation and taste test. All I can say is winner winner chicken dinner! It tastes real good! Not overly hoppy like modern IPA's, but has a nice malt/grain flavor followed by bitter finish.

Never had the original, but it does remind me of other historical IPA's I have had. Not sure if I can let it sit a few more weeks before opening the next one!

The original IPA was conditioned for one year in oak tanks. The regular B-Ale that is out today is 18 BU's, and dry hopped with Cascades. A very good Golden Ale. I have heard rumors that the IPA may be return.

I was really, really, really lucky to get to drink Ballantine Burton (brewed in the 1940's and bottled in the 1960's) in June. It was in brilliant condition for its age. Still fully carbonated, not oxidised to shyte.

I'd kill for a time machine to go back and drink Ballantine IPA in its prime.

OMG! I wonder if there is a chance it can be had here? I will have to check with my "pusher". I had a Ballantine India Pale Ale in like 1989 and it stood out to me as being quite a nice beer, not extreme in any way, but subtle, and flavorful
