[quote=“Pietro”]Fermentables look reasonable, but those hops seem borderline bizarre.
Quick question: why are you doing volume/fermentable weight in Metric then hops in English? Just curious, but I guess to each their own. Its actually more precise to use grams for hop additions anyway.
Now on to my hop questions: Seems like a ton of bittering hops. Torpedo is a great beer, with layered hop aroma/flavor. I would think it would have a smaller bittering charge and way more late hops.
Also, not sure of the practical effects of dry hopping with Magnum. Not saying I wouldn’t do it or its wrong, I just haven’t seen it and I’m not sure what they would do for you. Magnum are a pretty clean bittering hop. Kind of like the ‘salt in the stew’ for a lot of IPA/IIPAs :mrgreen:
Did you search other forums for this recipe? I have to believe there is a decent clone out there.
Good luck, its a great beer, and I hope you come close or better yet, nail it![/quote]
Most of the recipes on the web have hop additions listed in imperial units (grr), I just write them that way out of habit.
In some recipes I found, they used less Magnum for bittering, but when I threw the amounts into a calculator, the IBU always seemed to fall a bit short of 65/70. I added more just to bump the IBU up - wrong move?
All the recipes I’ve seen seem to have 0.67 oz of magnum, citra and crystal for dry hopping so it’s monkey see - monkey do as far as that goes.
Just a couple of the recipes I’ve seen can be found
As for my avatar - I may do but it doesn’t sound too sfw for googling
Cheers for the advice!
