In case anyone missed it, a fascinating resource for those of us familiar with their beers:

Holy Crap AB19 looks good, complex, but good. Anyone tried it?

I spent some time randomly scanning recipes from this, and what I'd say is sense check a recipe before you try it, as there are errors in there.  Still think it's a great resource for them to release though, and I'll be giving a few of the less hoppy recipes a go.

Most of those recipes looked pretty uninteresting to me.

They should call it "100 IPA recipes, and some other beers that use bizarre ingredients". Glad they're sharing this freely, but I'm all set for now. I might refer back to this if I ever get the idea to use wasabi or truffle or something else like that in a brew, but that's all the use I have for it.

What Brewdog do best is low abv and session IPA. Dead Pony Club (3.8% abv) is one of their bestselling beers in the UK. There's no way it tastes remotely like 3.8% - more like 5%. I'd been wondering how on Earth they pulled this off and can see now that it's by using an amazingly high percentage of Caramalt & crystal: 22% altogether. It gives the body that is so often missing in weaker beers. This beer is next on my to-brew list, or some variant of it with whatever hops I have to hand.

I haven't tried Nanny State (0.5% abv) but it came out top in a recent review of alcohol-free beers in the Guardian newspaper. Really unusual recipe with an OG of 1007, lots of speciality & crystal malts, tons of hops, but no base malt. I'm dying to try it, but not sure I would brew - it might be a step too far even for me.

Almost all recipes call for "Extra Pale" malt. Are they referring to Maris Otter, Crisp, or some other? My LHBS doesn't have an extra pale nor does Northern Brewer. Their kit even uses 2 row.
On another note.... I've loaded some of the recipes into my software and nothing gets close to their numbers. Especially the IBU's. They stated afterwards that they know hop variables will exist so they were vague. My SRM never gets close, as well. Anyone have this problem?

I saw a lot of typos,  OG FG  and ABV off a little by bit.  But some of those beers where frozen and ran off then froze again, etc.  Others where just straight common sense errors that are easy to figure,  But of their Hop Insane beers are with hop shots, and we won't know the info on those shots.  I will say they are REALLY hop heavy beers, but the Abstrak beers look pretty interesting they get my brain cooking out some really crazy inspirations

No one will every get close in BeerSmith for most of these recipes using their Hop adds to match the IBU's no matter how you adjust. 250 IBU? Really? Why?
#177 - 18.3% from OG of 1.067  ???
...And to get the OG's you have to have an efficiency of 62-66%  :-\
