Prima facie, the recipe looks okay but there's a few problems...

Firstly, Old G, change your topic title. (Yes, I am picking on you today :lol:). Edit your first post and change the subject title to something like "Heretic Evil Twin Clone Recipe". (I'm not picking on you too hard, otherwise I'd tell you to post it in the Recipes forum as well :).

That being said, do take a bit of time to read this and become familiar with any 'stickied' topic in this section. That latter section has a wealth of information you won't find anywhere else. This post is one example and relates to your question.

Read/study the above links. They will save you a heap of time and give you a heap of knowledge. In fact...

....

That last link will show you just a few of the pitfalls of trying to copy recipes you find online. While the above pics of the recipe might look nice, there is critical info missing. Studying that link will help you to find some of them.

There are a few other problems. For example, that recipe is published as a BIAB recipe but it isn't written as one. The 'Mash Guidelines' make no sense and it has a sparge in it. In BIAB, you don't need to sparge if your kettle can handle all the water to begin with. With a 70 L kettle, doing a single 'batch' (let's call that 23 L into fermentor, 6 gals if my memory serves me correctly), you don't even need to know what the word 'sparge' means.

And, to get really picky, I don't like the dry hopping schedule. Why dry hop some hops for 7 days whereas others are 4 days? There is no logic to that unless the guy has transferred to a secondary and the 4 day hops are in secondary. (I won't go into the logic of that here.)

Finally, I'm not sure what liquid yeast versus dry yeast prices are like in the US, but I go for dry yeast any time I can. It is not an inferior product. I would think that US-05 might be as feasible an option?

I just brewed an IPA today that has $35 (ozzie dollars) worth of hops in it. I'm about to pitch US-05 on it. In other words, I don't mind spending money on a brew but I also will look for sensible alternatives.

So, a bit of study for you ;). And, don't go for online recipes unless you find them here and one of us "older guys" has checked them out. Buy the two recipe books at the bottom of the page (at time of writing). These are recipes we know we can copy with a good degree of accuracy and have been written by very experienced brewers.

Don't waste your time online!

Your thread didn't get updated when you modified a previous post. I happened to have spotted a BIABacus screenshot.

Your grain bill doesn't match that last screenshot nor the OG. I would make that change first. Then if you want to brew a lower OG, then put that in on the 2nd space.

The hop section isn't complete. Fill out what you know on the left hand side (per recipe), than make any hop subs on the right.

Repost another screenshot for another look.

I looked at your screenshot in that link earlier, but now it's not working.

From memory you need to delete that OG in Section C and put in 1.062 in that first field.

Section D needs ALL the information of the hops on the left hand side (from the recipe screenshot) plus the IBU.

Get that original recipe in the BIABacus first and then we we talk about the changes, if any, you want to do.

These links you are giving are no good mate. They are dropbox links.

Upload your BIABacus file as you would a picture.

Also try and give more detail... I have no idea what wps means??? (Hold on just found out but have no idea why you aren't using LibreOffice instead?)

If you are not using BIABacus in Excel, you must still always save it as an .xls file. You are correct when you say that you should use the ingredients on the right-hand side however, if your BIABacus has become unprotected by saving it not as an .xls file, then it is very easy to compromise the formulas.

So, install LibreOffice, download a blank BIABacus file and always save as an .xls file.

...

Hop additions have different effects depending on what time of the boil they are added - read this.

Totally different! Everything should come into balance after fermentation, carbonation and conditioning.

It's a great sign though that, besides the bitterness, all is tasting great so far :clap: :clap: :clap:.

I just had a quick look and can't even see that you used Columbus in your recipe Oldgit.

You have to post more detail.

Your question can't be answered until you do. Didn't I mention uploading your BIABcus file somewhere above?*

* In fact, I think I spent a lot of time explaining how to do so in another thread but correct me if I'm wrong.

You did pistal patch
You said to load as if it was a photo
I can't do this as the only options I have when I select up load file is Dropbox or photos
No wps or excel files
So this is the best I can do
Ps, after your last reply I've stopped asking questions about this brew
I was just updating info someone may find it useful, but unlikely lol
