90min IPA clone IBU way off in Beersmith 2
« on: January 31, 2012, 06:50:19 PM »
I've plugged in a 90min IPA clone recipe into ver 2.0 and the IBU is off the charts.  I suspect its because the hops are added through the entire 90min boil and not at a specific time.  Is there an easy way to account for this in the recipe?

I assume that you would have to add lots of hop additions to the recipe and not just one. To add every 5 minutes with a 60 minute boil, divide your
hop amount by 12 and add 12 hop additions. This should get you in the ball park, I think...
