Notes

Used wet hops from Fitzgerald Farm in Haverhill. Recipe based on MHE's Hop Head Pale Ale. Hop volumes as measured on an analog scale. Used Brad Smith's advice for brewing with wet hops and adding into Beer Smith. http://beersmith.com/blog/2016/03/22/using-fresh-wet-hops-in-home-brewed-beer/ http://www.beersmith.com/forum/index.php?topic=5935.0 IBUs based on 1/8 of BeerSmith's default values. No hop analysis. Very rough estimate. Steeped grains in 2 gal of water. Added a third gallon, brought to boil, added LME, brought back to boil, added first hop addition. Used BIAB grain bag to contain hops. Let bag drain at end of boil. Topped off with 3.75 gallons of water. Pitched on hydrated packet of S05.
