interesting they list 72F fermentation and either wlp002 or wlp007. very different yeast IMO with different attenuation results.  mash temp of 156F....whoa!

I think I will give a try at some point since it is being replaced soon. I will probably sub in S04 and I don't think I will follow that fermentation schedule with my system. I guess it would be a Stone'ish' Pale Ale

They recommend that yeast as their yeast is of English origin but proprietary. I have read of folks using a blend of the two with good results.


And the 72F temp at their scale does not necessarily jive at homebrew scale. From what I understand, the size of the fermenters used results in reduced ester formation due to pressure. I would go with 66-67F and adjust from there.

+1 - Can't compare with big brewery fermentation temps.   I had always heard that they used 007 only for Arrogant Bastard and a clean one for the others.  Maybe not.

ok understood on fermentation temps. a mash temp of 156F would likely be needed to keep 007 from dropping that FG down to 1.010 or less.

Maybe I am missing something but those hop figures don't get me anywhere close to 50 IBUs. I also see on their website that they list Magnum instead of Columbus?

Did you count the Columbus addition as 90 minutes ?

Yep. I get 27.29 IBUs with Brewer's Friend and a batch volume of 5.35 gallons which is what I average on my system.

I'm sure they're pulling a bunch of IBUs from whirlpool.

That was my reaction, except that the recipe said to add the FO hops and 'chill as quickly as possible'.  Regardless, I'd bet they're picking up IBUs in whirlpool. It'd be easy enough to hop stand those Ahtanum additions, though.

I don't trust this recipe. 1.22 oz of 6% ahtanum isn't going to contribute 23 IBUs. I am obviously missing something. Website says magnum not Columbus for bittering...

I guess I would just adjust up accordingly to get in the ballpark...

I thought the same, till I noticed that was the "beginner" version of the recipe.  The advanced leaves a lot of the recipe formulation and technique up to the brewer.

EDIT:  And thinking back to my early days, 'chill as quickly as possible' could've very well meant a 45 minute hop stand!

Yep, just saw that. There you go. I swear, you do better brewing a 'clone' of something to just go by your palate than using some of the recipes. I'd rather do it that way, anyway.
