40 is about the minimum for an IPA, like Brewdog Punk, I want a hoppy/malty taste rather than too much bitterness.

Punk has an insane amount of hops! they just go in later. if you want to avoid bitterness could be a good way to go.? although pushes the pushes the cost up a bit.

ive just done a punk clone, and whilst its good, it doesnt have the same aroma, despite the copious amount of dry hops.

Short boil. Say 60 max. First hops at 30. Then flame out and then dry. I just tried dry 50g for 3 days. Brilliant summer ale made with galaxy hops.

Guessing here!-

What ale yeast did you use ? (US-05?)
And how much (7 grams?)
Want to do this this weekend on the 10 litre.
Cheers :beerbang:

If you have a vaccy packer I would use 1/2 and reseal.
That said it will do no harm to drop it all in.

With the added bonus, with right bags you can now use your BM to cook sous vide, if you wish!
