how many IBUs in that Cooper's Draught HME? I'm not familiar with that product. What are the IBU, SRM, etc for that. Hard to give you correct information without all the info.

So...if I'm looking at it right...you OG is upwards of 1.095 (or thereabouts).

Your IBU is going to end at roughly 43-45. 23 from the citra and about 20 from the IBUs on the HME.

So...if I'm looking at it right, this is VERY!!! malt heavy. And with such a low IBU it might be too sweet to even get close to. And with an OG that high, you might not be able to get next to it for 6 months or so anyway.

Mind you, I calculated this for a 2.3 gallon Mr. Beer LBK. If you brew it as a 5-gallong batch, it's a more manageable 1.044OG...but even then your IBUs are way too low for a normal pale ale.

I will be doing a 5 gal batch with this one, but may leave out 1 pound of the light dme to even it out a bit. I'm not a fan of very bitter beers. With that said I don't want anything cidery that want settle out for months.

Yeah...If you drop 1Lb of the DME and keep everything else...this turns into a very balanced beer, albeit a bit high on the ABV. But that one thing would even it out some.

This site is great! I have 1 question. Where/how do I add the HME?

I add as LME and then add hops seperately
apparently I got OG .01 higher than Qbrew that way
I think he said 1.044
I got 1.045

Update: after 10 days in the primary, I racked into secondary adding 3 cans of the Oregon blueberries in syrup. After 4 weeks on the shelf this beer tastes great, check out the head and lacing.

The only problem is I don't know the abv since I added the blueberries.
