Here's what I would do for a 1-gallon IPA. I'd only bother with a 15-minute boil, since it's an extract batch. But then I'd hop stand/whirlpool for 60-90 minutes after the boil. IBU's will end up measuring in the 90-100 IBU range, but probably only taste like 60-70 IBU's.

Brew Method: Extract
Style Name: American IPA
Boil Time: 15 min
Batch Size: 1 gallons (fermentor volume)
Boil Size: 1.5 gallons
Boil Gravity: 1.043
Efficiency: 35% (steeping grains only)
No Chill: 10 minute extended hop boil time

STATS:
Original Gravity: 1.064
Final Gravity: 1.018
ABV (standard): 6.09%
IBU (tinseth): 292.38

i brew 1-2 gallon batches but it is hard to do those with liquid extract just because of cost. was easier to go all grain at that level

If you need a recipe for this weekend it would be too late but Brooklynbrewshop.com has a book with 52 recipes for all grain 1 gallon batches.  They also give the 5 gallon equivalents.  I've brewed a few of them and I thought they turned out well.

hop stand is when you add hops at flameout and then cover the pot and let it rest. whirlpool is the same thing but with a the wort spinning either by stirring or with a whirlpool device

The Whole Foods stores in my area sell them, so it may be an option on short notice for some as well.

I kill the heat, then slide the kettle off the burner until all boil activity stops. Then I add my flameout hops and stir them in. The pot then goes back over the still-warm burner (to help hold heat) with the lid on. I give it a good hard stir every 5 minutes or so. After the hop stand I chill as usual.

This mimics what the pros do with their whirlpool additions. You end up extracting a boatload of hop flavor and aroma and lose a lot less of it since the wort isn't actively boiling.

Thanks, but I'm looking for extract only.

Hop Bomb?
« Reply #24 on: February 08, 2014, 07:58:25 PM »
So after much debate I went with the following. After the brew, I'm wondering if I'll have a hop bomb as Beer Smith states an IBU of 119! Can this be with only 1 ounce of hops in a gallon brew?

-1.5 lbs DME (extra light)
-.25 lbs Crystal 40 (steeped for 10 min @ 160)
-1 ounce Columbus hops (1/4 addition each 15 minutes)
-S-05

I shouldn't be worried about the ridiculous high IBU prediction? I'll be breaking up the schedule a little differently on tomorrows 1 gallon batch. Learning a lot playing w. BeerSmith.

no but i would skip the 45, and 30 minute and do .25 at 60, .25 at 15, .5 at 0. 45 and 30 minute additions don't do much for me.

Johnathan,
Correct me if I'm wrong, but are the IBU's predicted by BeerSmith something to take with a grain of salt? I can't imagine drinking a "Pale Ale" with ~125 IBUs. That sounds disgusting for me, and I like DIPA's.

Well, they are fairly accurate but it is still a calculation. Additionally 125 ibu can taste different using different hops.

If you don't want that much bitterness try dropping the 60 addition all together. Add it as dry hop maybe. I've never used columbus as dry hop but that way you'll get the full picture of what that hop is all about
