Big Brew Extract Recipe Errors
« on: April 07, 2014, 04:02:56 PM »
I was looking at the recipes for this year's Big Brew event and accidentally clicked on the extract recipes. I noticed an error in one, and then checked the other two, and found a second error.

http://www.homebrewersassociation.org/wp-content/uploads/Black-Dog-Lager-Schwarzbier-Extract.pdf

This one lists Munich malt, but doesn't specify a mini-mash for it.  It does reference Munich extract which does not appear on the ingredient list.

This one has wheat malt on the ingredient list, but doesn't talk about it in the recipe specifics.

Thanks, Chumley.  I'll let Matt know.

Both of these recipes have been updated.

Chumley- thanks for the catch! And thanks, Denny, for notifying me!

The all-grain recipes seem to have an error too.

I noticed, for Split Open and Melt, there are two different hop addition amounts depending on which page you view the recipe on.

On the actual Big Brew recipe sheet page, it shows a 0.5oz Chinook addition at 60 minutes. On the featured article page that's scrolling on the website main page, it shows this addition to be 1.5oz at 60 minutes. Both recipes sheets show IBUs as 86. In order to get ~86 IBUs, it would seem the 1.5oz addition would be correct.
