    Holy hops batman! This is going to be a good one I think. I just plugged the recipe from the Austin Homebrew direction into BS and the first thing that has me worried is the 211 IBU's. It's their recipe so I guess it will be ok.

    Wow .... the hops will cost twice what the grain will!

    diminishing returns, that first hop addition is not going to yield 150 IBU

    but it's gonna be damn hoppy and bitter.

    I highly doubt a beer can be above 100 ibu's without some crazy extract things.

    Yeah...I don't know if it's a literal 100+ ibu beer but it is one of the hoppiest beers I've ever drank. ic an't compare to the original since I don't live on the left coast. My friend that came over said he was in CA visiting a friend and they went to a bar that was serving flights of pliny the younger and pliny the elder. When they showed up it was three hour wait to get a flight.
