This version turned out too bitter. Its on the right track but I'm going to reduce bittering hops or boil time with next attempt. I'm not sure what the reason was it was so much more bitter than the original. I followed the recipe from Russian river to the T.

I agree, i made this and thought it was a bit too bitter. I am backloading the hop bill next time for sure

I've not revisited this recipe yet. Any modifications you've made since the original that made it better?

The reason its too bitter is because you are using a hop bill with an estimated 232 IBUs. I would adjust that by a significant amount. I like your grain bill and it seems to follow what was suggested per Vinnie.

Agreed locobrewer. I found the IBUs to be crazy high, however, the hop bill is exactly what Vinnie listed for a 5 gallon recipe. I decided to go with Vinnie and brew his recipe exactly as it was written. The hop bill definitely needs some tweaking for a 5 gallon batch. Not sure why Vinnie listed such an aggressive hop bill for a 5 gallon recipe.

Just ditch the 3.5 ounce addition, then tweak. That'd be some serious bite all by itself!

I didn't do the math but the hops he is using to calculate the IBUs have lower AA then the ones quoted above, maybe you guys noticed this just said I would make sure

it looks like your bittering addition just has a decimal out of place lol 0.35oz, not 3.5 oz. Should end up around 90ibu.

Any idea why the water profile is for Burlington, Vt when Russian River is in California?
|Bubychris • 11/27/2018 at 04:44pm|
Just curious about the hops used. Russian River’s website says they use CTZ, Amarillo, Centennial, and Simcoe. Yet you say this is the correct bill, could that be your issue.

I just popped this into a fermenter as written. I love bitter beers, so I hope this one is drinkable on some level. LOL.

Curious about which water profiles folks used and/or if anyone did the recipe twice with a comparison to Pliny. I brewed the AHA version and did a side-by-side with a bottle of Pliny brought to NJ. Mine was darker and different, but the panel was split on which they preferred. So overall a good recipe, but I'm really not sure where the color variance to that degree crept in. I'd been emailing back and forth with Vinny, but he stopped short of recommending a water profile. I used "light colored and hoppy", which he'd indicated that I was in the ballpark.
