I like that! Not the recipe, but the concept. I can open it up in Beersmith as well, and have a play with it. Might be on to something there Nick.

IBU's and Aroma hopping seem very low for an IPA. Or was that a typo?

Also, a 3.5kg grain bill aiming for that OG will barely make enough for a 9L picnic keg. 5 gallon or 18.93L is generally the minimum standard batch size for homebrew.

Any size recipe can be resized - not sure about this minimum requirement thingamajig. Pretty sure this thread wasn't meant to be about the recipe so much as a suggestion for database improvement.

The recipe is well within the AIPA style and is a corker. It's a real recipe.

I'm sure the recipe is real and I'm sure it's lovely. What I meant was that the thread was not established for the point of recipe critique - there was another intended purpose.

It's funny how people can't get their head around "non standard" sized recipes. He thinks it's a typo that 3.6kg of grain makes a 14L IPA. Funny.

No, I thought IPA was a typo & you meant to write APA - because that's what the hopping schedule & IBU's looked like to me. Have a look at some other IPA recipes and see what I mean.

Have a look at the BJCP Style Guidelines for an AIPA and see what I mean.

EDIT: BJCP AIPA specs.

Is Beersmith and Brewmate attachments coming with the DB? Seems like an essential feature.
