    200 IBUs! I'd love to see a modern brewer try to recreate an original IPA.

    I'd hate to see the price tag on 8 lb per bbl with Galaxy or Nelson :grinning:

    Keep in mind that this is a calculated value. In actual brewing you can't genuinely achieve a value like 200 IBUs; the maximum that can actually be achieved is significantly lower than that value.

    Cheers!
