Notes

Gold Medal IPA in 2014 NHC (See Zymurgy Sept/Oct 2014 page 68)

I entered all the ingredients and then back-calculated the brewhouse efficiency to match the reported OG. By doing this, I arrived at 77%

Information I guessed or did not include because it wasn't published:

  • Mash thickness
  • Pitch rate
  • Hopback specifics (utilization and temperature)
  • Water profile
