What was your OG and FG?

i have just enough bottles for one more batch and i should have a small order of specialty grains soon.

so i'm gonna brew this again.

i'll probably do 15lb pale malt, 14oz cm60 and 14oz carafaIII.
mash around 152.
bitter with magnum, also use amarillo, i have a few other hops to use but no simcoe...galena, cluster, willamette, chinook...

also not sure if i'll do wlp023 or wlp051 yeast as i have both in the fridge...

Ok, so tasted this last night. It's really good, but it lacks the hoppiness of the real thing. It's only been in the bottle for 4 days, but I couldn't wait. Plus, the bottle I opened was designated as a tester as it was only half full. I expect improvement over time, but I will definitely make this again and when I do I will experiment with the hops. I saw other recipes that use Ahtanum hops and I figured I'd give that a try. Here's the final BS output:

Carbonation and Storage

Pressure/Weight: 4.2 oz Carbonation Used: -
Keg/Bottling Temperature: 60.0 F Age for: 28.0 days
Storage Temperature: 52.0 F

Notes

Low OG. I believe I oversparged and ended up with too much wort. Ended up with less concentration of sugars. I had about 6 gallons in the pot after boil and tossed maybe a quart with sludge. May have low alcohol, which isn't entirely bad.

3/31 - Just tasted this. Only in the bottle for 4 days, but it tastes great! Lacks hoppiness though. Try Ahtanum hops next time. Should tone down the Carafa to II as well.

you should've used more late addition hops.

i'm going to make this tonight.
i'll probably do 1.75-2 oz of hops at 90 minutes, either magnum or galena.
the same hop again at 20 or 30 minutes. probably about .75oz.

then two big late additions of hops for the hop flavor and a bit of aroma, one somewhere around 5-15 minutes and another at flame out.
each of these will probably be 2oz each.
i've got amarillo, cluster, galena, magnum, willamette, a little chinook, a little fuggle.
i'm thinking a little amarillo and alot of cluster because i haven't used cluster yet...

i still have to do the calculations to get the IBU's to 95-100 or so.

the grain is milled.
15lbs belgian pale
14oz carafaIII
14oz Crystal 60
4.5oz Crystal 10
3.5 oz victory

those last two very small amounts of grain in the bill were because i needed to empty two jars that were almost empty so i could put grains that just arrived in them.

Yeah, I figured as much. Plenty of IBUs, not enough hop "aura", if you will. The real SSR explodes in your nose and in your mouth with flavor, aroma, and bitterness. I'm lacking the flavor.

You got a lot of different hops going on there. Cleaning out?

hops direct...order a few times and you'll end up with a freezer full of hops.

so i'm bittering with galena, flavor and aroma are amarillo and cluster.
OG should be ~1.075, made a starter with wlp023 last night.

Yeah, your late additions and dry-hopping are pretty low. Here was my hop schedule:

3.00 oz Chinook [11.40 %] (110 min)
1.00 oz Amarillo Gold [7.50 %] (10 min)
1.00 oz Simcoe [12.20 %] (10 min)
1.00 oz Amarillo Gold [7.50 %] (1 min)
1.00 oz Simcoe [12.20 %] (1 min)
2.00 oz Simcoe [12.20 %] (Dry Hop 5 days)
2.00 oz Amarillo Gold [7.50 %] (Dry Hop 5 days)

Tasted a hydro sample yesterday and it was pretty good. Not quite finished fermenting, but the hops were definitely there. Still have the 4oz of dry-hopping in a couple weeks

Default Ya buddy!

This one has been on deck w/ me for awhile, Gonna brew it wed-thurs.

PM 5.5 gal 70% effic
OG 1.081 FG 1.020 (hopefully lower) 8.04%ABV IBU 124.5

6lb xlight dme
6lb 2 row
14oz carafa 3
14 oz 60L
2oz chinook 60
.5 zeus 30
.5 amarillo 10
.5 simcoe 10
.5 amarillo 1
.5 simcoe 1
1oz amarillo DH
1oz simcoe DH


What do ya think? I just guessed on the hop additions, I think this is a good spread? Any thoughts would be great. Does anyone know why Beer Tools Pro doesn't add any IBU's for DH? I know it's mainly for aroma, but I would think it still adds some bitterness. I can't wait to brew this one, this is the beer that made me want to start brewing! I've been working up the huevos for this for months. I use a stater/stir plate and am going towards Pacman yeast. I've read countless info on big OG beers, but never done one. Any advice from dudes that have done this recipe or other big uns would be appreciated (other than big starter/good aeration) Thanks, this forum is the shiznit!
