Hey, everyone...

My cousin & I are thinking about attempting something close to a Burning River type of ale..not necessarily a clone, but definitely want to take some things from it.

I'm just seeing that the IBUs on the actual brew are 45, not 60, and for those of you who've had this, you know how bitter it already is! Is there a way to calculate the amount of hop utililzation for a partial boil (3G) to get to that range?

Thanks in advance!

I'm a big fan of Great Lakes Burning River. Wondering if you brewed this and how it turned out?

We did, actually...and it came out pretty good. Not quite as piney as the original, but a nice, easy drinker. I'm sure I can dig up the bill if you're interested - it's an extract recipe, though...haven't made the leap to all grain yet.

Default burning river pale ale clone - 10 gallon batch

I just upgraded some of my equipment and am going to attempt a 10 gallon batch in my new 15 gallon keggle and blichman burner . Still doing extract, but this is the first time I'm attempting a boil this large, previously I've been doing partial boils for 5 gallon batches on my electric stove.

I purchased two "Burning River" Pale Ale Clone kits, and plan to just double my ingredients. Can anyone advise if I should adjust my hops (or anything else) for this double batch? Here's the specifics:

Target OG: 1.058 - 1.064
Final Gravity: 1.012-1.018

Ingredients:
1 lb 40L crystal
3 oz biscuit malt
1 can briess golden light LME
4 lbs light DME
3 oz cascade pellets (bittering 90 min)
1 oz cascade pellets (flavor 15 min)
1 oz cascade pellets (aroma 2 min)
1 oz cascade leaf (dry hop secondary)
1 tsp irish moss
safale US-05

Any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Dan

Just double it and you will be fine.
