Not that I know of, here's an untested (by me) Pirate Life IPA that I assume I saved as a note from AHB, try to find that post maybe.
You can tweak this to taste and change up hops a a a decent base and work from there.

Thanks Mate that looks like a very solid base recipe! I'll do some research and try find what hops they use.

I assume this is for a 21L batch?

Cheers

I assume so, put it into some software, I've only got this screenshot as a reference, post will be in here somewhere still. Note 75 min boil too so adjust expected wort volume if not doing 75min.

*Edit. Boil time note, typos

hey would anyone be able to give me a recipe for Balter Captain Sensible or at least the hop bill. This is about the best mid strength beer that I’ve tasted

Did you end up finding an answer to this?
No you have won the prize for the first reply
I have been using the pirate life throwback recipe that is is a forum here(V2 or 3) which is a good low abv recipe and have been playing around with the hops
Having recently tasted a halter xpa I would say that the XP’s has the same hop bill or very similar so I thought I’d try that

Just checking on the yeast, do I need to use all 3 or choose 1 packet? New to all grain brewing so may be a stupid question!!
I think you’re asking if you use just one of the types of yeast, not specifically how many satchels of the yeast you choose to use?
I personally like the US-05 yeast for this type of beer and I would use 2x 11g satchels of it in a 25l batch.

cheers big beers,
Ben

No, just pick one, note if using the dry then two packets are required, if using wet then a starter would be necesary.

Hi guys - interested to know the outcome if I increase volume to 27L, leave the malt the same and according to BF this will reduce the ABV to 6%. Am brewing in a 65L BZ. Would this change affect the brew.

It will change it but that’s no reason not to proceed. I’m sure you’ll run it a few more times to tweak to what you like. Just keep accurate notes and maintain good records and you will come to understand what changes have what impact on final beer. Have fun, it will still be awesome !!
