Yea that's right all the action is in the last 12 mins. I believe the term is 'hop burst' and works really well. Obviously you loose efficiency on the bittering addition but that's the only downside.

I've done the same recipe twice. Blown away by how hoppy the first one was for a homebrew. Good luck with yours

I've done this brew 4 times now, tweaking it slightly for lower OG & IBU's and it's great. Even using only late hopping the bitterness is spot on and after 4 or 5 months in the bottle the aroma still smacks you in the face.

Had a crack at How to disappear completely on friday night. Never tried the beer, but the idea of it sounds interesting. Anyway I wish i'd put the recipe into beersmith first because the mumbers don't quite work, at least, not with my setup. It was meant to be og 1.037 and I got 1.050. Also slightly confused by the colour- very dark!

Anyone tried the beatnik milk stout recipe 173 ? I'm struggling to see how they get to 6.5% with a small grain bill, not done the maths but I think the grain bill is less than 4kg with just under 400g of lactose Deffo gonna run this thru a biab software

I bottled up the American Wheat #160 at the weekend and that's come out very nice indeed. Nearly came a cropper as I plugged the recipe into the grainfather app and it claimed I needed 6 litres of mash water for a 23 litre batch. Luckily I've done enough not to blindly follow the app (and was awake for once).

Did however drop my usual 75 min mash to 45 following Clibit's wisdom. Will certainly be doing that as standard from now on.

I ran the numbers thru biabacus and I got double the grain and nearly triple the hops the recipe states anyone else get this

Has anyone brewed punk ipa to the hop schedule in the pdf? Ie the dey hopped version. It has additions at start, middle and end. I assume this means 60, 30 & flame out. Just wondering if i shoild do this or go for the "all in the last 12 minutes" version...

I'm going to do the all in the last 12 I reckon. People seem to say it turns out well.

I put punk into beersmith and had to adjust hop timings/amounts to hit the ibu stated and also the grainbill slightly to get the correct colour.

I guess with hops it depends to an extent what year/alpha content the hops used are

I've done the "all in the last 12 minutes" version every time and it works brilliantly.

I've done three very different beers from the book so far.

#215 Jet black Heart (Oatmeal Stout, Lactose, Sorachi Ace)
#198 Candy Kaiser (Altbier, Malt & toffee bomb, Cool ferment)
#174 Restorative beverage for invalids and convalescents. (Bone dry Old School IPA)

All done as close as I could to the recipe (only minor tweaks really) and each one has taught me something new. Very pleased with the quality of the beers so far - has been a great experience. Lots more to do on my wishlist and I can see this book and the knowledge gained from it featuring large in my brewing for years to come.
