Also, beware, there are quite a few mistakes in those tables. I'm assuming that the general trend is correct.

comment IPA recipe left very sweet, little bitterness or aroma
Good catch on the DME vs liquid. Jarrod, if you're new and haven't already purchased a hydrometer, I can't encourage you enough to get one. I spent too many brews without one, and when things go well, you can get away with it, but when they don't, you MUST have one to begin diagnosing problems.

comment Recommendations for scaling up operations
Also, please don't forget that high-gravity wort can be delicious without diluting as well.

We course corrected on the day before the brew, transferring to the barrel this weekend.

comment What is the purpose of dry hopping in intervals (multiple additions)?
Great link. I'm still perplexed how hops interact differently in small amounts repeatedly instead of all at once, as Denny and others obviously believe they don't.

It'd probably be helpful if you can list as much detail as you have about what you did.
