Are you sure or is your hop amount out 1 decimal point?

If you brew an extract you might just surprise yourself.

yeah, I'm figuring making up stockings of 150g each added each minute for 10 minutes.
only because adding 1.5kg in one hit will kill the boil.

Why stockings? because i can squeeze them out and not lose 7L of wort to hops.

might need some rubber gloves for that though.
Walking out with 5 pairs of stockings and a pair of rubber gloves might raise some eyebrows :p

Will take plenty of pics on brewday ;)

Yeah, I reckon I'll be over Amarillo by the time I get to the bottom of the keg.
Might bottle half of it though and put it away for a few months to settle.

Wow. That is a huge amount of hops. You would hope you don't get an infection in that batch.

Rather than squeeze your bag too much you could adjust your software to allow for the extra losses expected.

Nah, my hop screen wouldn't be able to cope with that amount of loose pellets and there's no way it would get through the plate chiller. So it'll have to go into stockings anyway. May as well squeeze them a bit to recover.

I'm thinking of 2x mash of 4kg each to push my efficiency up then if i need to I can add water to bring it up to the right OG.

I'd still be using the hop stockings either way.

And where is the other pound of hops? You sleeping with them under your pillow?

For sure.
Have PM'd Doom about it all, he's replied but haven't properly read it yet.
Efficiency drops, really large losses to hops etc is all new stuff to me.
Having never done something with such a big OG and because I don't use BS properly enough to allow for the changes, i'm kinda doing it via careful planning (AKA: Seat of my pants).
But at the cost of this brew, I don't want it to **** out so much that it's undrinkable.

And where is the other pound of hops? You sleeping with them under your pillow?
I don't know if there's an equivalent to "Chroming" when it comes to hops.
I have laced my coffee with pellets and dry hopped my lemonade with them in the glass.
But most of the time I just bury my nose into the bag as often as I can.
I will probably use them in a Rogers Beer type clone.

This years Amarillo is amazing!

What if it turns out less drinkable than your pale ale K&K?
Fair chance it will, if you ask me :ph34r: :ph34r:
