Ran 5lbs dme and 2.5gal boil with 1oz willamette for 40min in my brewing software. I get 10IBU,s. and a BU:GU ratio of .27
So I think you should be fine. Might be a little on the sweet side but I don't think it will be cloying.
Sonds good. I may have to try this. And thanks for the recipe :)
Did you ever try using BMBF? It works awesome for bottling beer from a keg. Maybe it would work with soda? Not sure cause of the higher carbonation of soda...
Yea probably because of the lack of a boil. The boiling lets the hop oils become soluble in the wort. Probably didnt get enough bitterness from the hops. I dont know how to fix it. Maybe franks red hot?:D
Was the fg close to the estimated fg from the recipe?
Do you mean no head retention?
I've never used mr.beer, but lack of head retention can be caused by not waiting long enough for the beer to condition in the bottle. Dish soap residue on your glass can be a cause as well.
