I'm thinking of brewing this, but I've got a couple of questions. You say the clone recipe from BYO is dead on, but I notice that you've swapped the knock-out Cascade addition for a seven-day dry hop addition. Any reason for that; is it an oversight or have you tried both and believe that the dry-hop is an improvement?
Also, the ABV listed here is 5.6%. I'm in the UK and the Lagunitas IPA we get here is 6.2%. Do you know if it's essentially the same beer brewed to a higher gravity, or is the export recipe different?

If you have a whirlpool you can put the cascade at 0 and whirlpool for at least 30 minutes, if not dryhop. The ABV will be correct at a higher efficiency, this is set at 70% for common brewers, I usually get 85% or more which is close, if you need higher and do not get a higher efficiency just add more 2-row or yuo could just add corn sugar. Thanks
