Hey All,

I recently got my hands on a Burning River clone..SCORE. It is set up for a 2.5 gal boil. Can anyone tell me where to get a calcualtor to convert for proper hop utilization. Or tell me the formula so i can calculate.


Thanks!

Sure, post the recipe and I'll run it through Beersmith for you. And then, I'll convert it to AG and make it, too! That is one of my favorite beers!

Sorry that is the first recipe i posted. I cant wait to try it out!

I will probably start with 6.5 - 7 gallons of boil water. So that may affect hop utilization.

YOOP, i thought you might like this, i saw you posted on it awhile back.

here's one that I've got all grain:

All grain OG: 1.061-63 FG: 1.014-1.016 SRM: 12 IBU: 60

10.67 lbs US 2-row pale malt
12 oz US 40 L Crystal malt
3 oz. Belgian Biscuit Malt
Mash at 150 for 90 min.

12.3 HBU bittering hops
1 oz cascade @ 5.5% for 90 min **
1.5 oz. Northern Brewer @ 8% for 90in **These are the extract hops which are 17.7 HBU's, so adjust amounts to 12.3 HBU's for full boil.
2/3 oz Cascade for 15 min
2/3 oz Cascade for 1 min
1/2 oz Cascade dry hop (3 weeks?)

1 tsp irish moss for 15 min

1st choice: Wyeast 1968 London ESB
2nd choice: Wyeast 1028 London Ale


for extract I ran this thru ProMash and came up with (for 6 gal):
6.0 lbs Muttons light DME
2.5 muttons dark DME
steeping grains and hops the same.

I have Beersmith, Broozer, so I'll run it, but I don't understand that hopping schedule. What goes in at what time? It doesn't make sense to me that way. I have a terrible cold, and my head is clogged up and I don't quite "get it". When I run that with a 2.5 gallon boil, I get like 30 IBUs using the first hops at 60 minutes. With a full boil, you'd get 60, which is closer anyway.

So, I'd do that recipe with a full boil just as written. I'm not sure how close it would be to Burning River, though.

here's a pale ale from the brewers at great lakes, it's published in the brewmaster's bible, circa 1995. this recipe is by andrew tveekrem, brewmaster at great lakes brewing.

10 gallons

21 lbs english pale malt
3 lbs english crystal malt (usually 60L)

northern brewer or galena kettle hops
cascade at 30 minutes
goldings at 15 minutes
goldings at flame out

weast 1028

note: the author doesn't measure out hops per se, but says each addition is about three handfuls of pellet hops. i'd aim for two to three ounces per addition.

DOnt worry Yooper, maybe this will make it more clear. Hop additions are as follows.

1oz cascade &
1.5 oz northern brewer at begining of 60 minute boil

2/3 oz cascade (flavor) at 45 minutes

2/3 oz cascade at 59 minutes. The aroma are only to be boiled for 1 minute.

This recipe is from the book beer captured.

ok, that's what I assumed when I ran it. I'm glad I did it right. Like I said, with a 2.5 gallon boil, the IBUs are around 30, but with a full boil, it's 60 IBUs. So, I'd do the full boil with no adjustments.
