    Working on a recipe for an imperial hefeweizen, (yeah I know)

    Going to mash 60/40 Wheat and Pilsner, top it off with DME Pilsen for gravity, shooting for around 1080.
    hopping Mittelfruh at 60, and Mosaic at whirlpool.
    Double pitching WLP300 for this one.

    WATER: ok. I'm thinking of doing

    Ca, Mg, Na, Cl, SO
    70, 10, 10, 75, 50

    and adding Lactic to hit a mash pH of 5.3

    Thoughts?

    the mittelfruh I have is 2.6%AA, so all of it at 60 min is going to contribute 20 IBUs, I'm OK with that.
    the Mosaic I have is at 11%, whirlpooling that at the 10% utilization per the calculator adds 36 IBUs.
    Total of 56 IBUs, seems like a lot, but it's going to be subjective

    in general, I've found all IBU calculations on the site to be off. my brews usually taste way less hoppy than what's expected
