Question for Denny... is 1450 your go-to yeast or do you just use it on specific recipes?

looking forward to brewing this, and am adjusting the recipe to my equipment, but we really need to know what the end of boil volume is. "batch size" and "boil volume" is a little vague. how much kettle trub was there? what was the boil off rate? knowing the end of boil volume is essential for getting the right OG on another set of equipment.

i'm assuming batch size here of 5 gal is what was transferred to fermenter? assuming a 15% boil off rate, there would be 5.44 gal end of boil, and .44 gal of trub, transferring 5 gal to fermenter.

i'd rather not make assumptions, and want to brew this recipe as close to the original as possible. any insight?

thanks!

essential to getting the correct OG / IBU ratio

I use it for about 90% of the American styles I make. AIPA, APA, Am. brown, porters....

I don't know which version of the recipe you're using. There's one for 5 gal. finished volume (in the fermenter) and one for 5.5. That's "batch size". Boil volume is gonna depend on your own system. Trub amounts are likewise dependent on if you use pellets or whole hops and how your system handles them. As long as you calculate things to hit 1.073 and 75 IBU you can do whatever your system requires.

Thanks, Denny. I'm using the recipe from this thread. What you are saying definitely makes sense, but IBU calculations vary greatly from software to software and then of course, rager and tinseth, etc.

Knowing end of boil volume and hop amounts, regardless of how many IBUs the software says would be most accurate, right?

Sounds like you need to RDWHABH and brew one to figure it out, then again for accuracy with your adjusted findings. Good luck! Don't worry so much just give it a try....

I use Tinseth for my hop calcs. It seems to be the most accurate for full boils and when I've had beers analyzed for IBU they've been very close to what I calced using Tinseth in Promash.

The recipe on the very first page of this thread is accurate for 5 gal., although the stuff in bold at the top mis-estimates the OG and IBU. Just use the rest of it and remember 1.073 and 75 IBU.

I just entered the recipe into Beersmith and it's giving me a final gravity of 1.017. Is this correct? The recipe states 1.013?
