has some chill haze - but I just got an IC so hopefully should speed up cooling and help that problem for future batches

I'm planning on brewing this one up as my next beer. My LHBS only sells the 3.3 lb cans of extract so I was doing a little tinkering on Beercalculus to make sure things wouldn't get too out of whack if I used 6.6 lbs of LME instead of just 6. Looks fine, just a little more ABV, but while I was messing around I noticed that the IBU's that were calculated, were done so using a full 5-gal. boil. When I changed it to a 2-gal. boil the IBU's dropped way down. I had one member on the site tell me that the more concentrated wort yields less alpha acid attenuation. It looks like the software used here takes the 2 gal. boil into account for the final IBU's (20.6), but for this, and future recipes, I want to make sure that I get all the hop action that I think I am. So, any advice or info concerning this issue is greatly appreciated. I'll probably post a thread on the beginners forum as well, but since this beer sounds so good, I wanted to check in here as well. Really looking forward to this beer and want to make sure I get it right. Thanks.

So I answered my own question regarding the Beercalculus software. I didn't have the settings on the same IBU formula. It was on Tinseth instead of Rager. Interesting that the final IBU's for the recipe (for a 2.5 gal boil) was 20.9 with the Rager formula and about 9.7 with the Tinseth formula. Is there an overriding opinion on the correct formula to use for these things?

Nope, just used the default in pro-mash.

But the hop schedule is for a 2 gal boil, right? I know that's what the recipe says, I just want to make sure. I'm excited about this beer and want to make sure I've got it right. Thanks.

Actually, its 2.35gal or 2 gal, 44oz. I believe that was for boil liquid loss. This is what pro mash had calculated.

If you start 2.25 is not going to hurt much.
