A note about these homebrew recipes: they are designed for 5 gallons of packaged beer with 5.5 gallons going into the fermentor. I assume roughly 70-72% brewhouse efficiency on a batch sparge setup, 1.25 gallon/hour boil-off (~15%), Tinseth IBU calculations, Whirlfloc and yeast nutrient added at 15 minutes left in boil, and some salts added to 70:30 RO:San Diego tap water (final ion concentrations are usually noted). Typically the recipe will be available to download in BeerXML format at the bottom of the recipe and can be loaded into any number of brew software (I prefer BeerSmith).
