Re: I Heart Me - IPA

I brewed this recipe again. Last time was over Thanksgiving holiday. Both were double batches and they were the first and second brew in my new 20 gallon kettle. The grain absorption rate was set at 0.6 l/kg the first time around and worked out well for me, in fact came out with a little more volume...

Re: Whirlpooling Tool --- New England IPA Hop Additions

Scott, I wouldn't overthink it on your first attempt on this NEIPA style. Add a pump and a whirlpool arm later if you feel like it You are only talking about a few ounces after flame out. After forty minutes is up after flame out, just pull your spider (squeeze the hops if you like) and then chill (...

Re: Whirlpooling Tool --- New England IPA Hop Additions

John is a brewer in my club, we have a Facebook page. The IBU's come mostly from the "whirlpool" hops. The recipe says there is 55 IBU's. This is my take on how this might by calculated. First line is the FWH. 2ND, 3RD AND 4TH are the whirlpool ones. So my best guess it's calculated at 70 mins for F...

After I pinned John C. down to the recipe in question "How would you brew this recipe?" , he said... "I like weldworks.... I'd do it like they did! You can see they have very little boil hops.... What's there is from the first wort addition. That .6 oz whirlpool isn't too much.... nor is the the 1.3...

Re: Whirlpooling Tool --- New England IPA Hop Additions

No, not whirlpooling, but hop stand. My hopping is typically using pellets and use a paint strainer bag and squeeze after the pull. I have hop "stood" for an hour once, 30 minutes a number of times and have recently gone to 15 minutes. I once made an IPA (standard single batch) with 1.5 pounds of go...

This PDF might be interesting to read.  Formulas are mentioned regarding hop storage losses on page 63 and 64.

Re: Tinseth formula issues?

The BIABacus adjusts the hop amount weight between the "FL" flower setting and the blank setting.  His formula does align up with BIABacus "FL".

Re: Gordon Strong-Modern homebrew recipes

I think you did a good job with detective mode.  Is the IBU recipe close to BIABacus 53 IBU?

My best guess is that Gordon would have the recipe defaults declared at the beginning of the book.

Re: BIABacus scaling recipe question

I made a double batch of my version of the Two Hearted Ale and am currently drinking it.  Beginning on post #50 of my "I Heart Me - IPA" recipe thread (starting at the last post on 2nd page) I have laid out my recipe and results.  It's a good beer.  I targeted a 1.063 OG.

Ok, looks like it will be more of a 13°...  I dunno what happened, but my OG was 1.054 instead of the expected 1.048. I'm thinking it was my new grain mill, or perhaps my keeping more attention on the mashing temp, or perhaps I just weighed the grain wrong. No worries, it will be just that little b...

You can add all your grain on one line, just put in the total weight, or break it down into groups.

Re: help with Biabacus and stout recipie

Spreadsheet looks pretty good, there are red warnings displayed, as long as you are aware of them.  You are at risk of a boil over when you have your first charge of hops added.
