bump, any help here would…er…help…tx

I saw this before, but for whatever reason, the format you cut and pasted is hard to follow. Just saying.

If I read this right, you’re looking at:

39.7 IBUs and 15.71 SRM?

If correct, I think you’re just fine as-is - I’ve made a few Old Ales in the past (one even somehow got BOS 2 years ago) and they’ve all been 30-40 IBUs tops. This style is about the malt, if you get too heavy with the hops, you’ll wind up with an English Barleywine - they’re very similar.

BTW, do you love Honey Malt or something? I’d drop that one if it were my beer, and I’d probably use 1028/013 or 1968/002 for yeast, but I really don’t like S04 personally.

thanks blatz, yeah, sorry, cut and pasted that from brewmasters warehouse. i’m pitching onto a slurry from alow vravity beer with s-04, but I agree, maybe not the best choice.
