What's the FV volume of this recipe? If it's anything like the real thing I'll be brewing it ASAP...

Doesn't state the length of time in the FV or which day to dry hop.
Been adding my dry hops on day 3 for biofermentation of my hazy NEIPA.
But GammaRay isn't that hazy so will probably wait till Krausen drops.
Still bubbling away nicely and has a wicked golden orange colour to it.
I doubled the first Columbus hop addition and the sample I took wasn't bitter at all.
Im also shocked that they released the recipe.

The Cloudwater is the Bergamot German_Style Wheat IPA
The Buxton is Imperial Black IPA
Thornbridge Halcyon Imperial IPA

No, I meant how much beer does it make! I'm guessing 19l or maybe 20?

Its a pity they don't explain when to dry hop.
How long to dry hop for, if to split it into a DDH.
Its been a week today, the Krausens just started dropping and fermentation slowed down.
Just not sure when best to dry hop as I don't want to leave the hops in for longer than 5 days

I'm not. It's EXTREMELY hard to make an exact clone of a beer. You can make a beer that's very like what you're trying to clone but unless you have absolutely every single detail of the recipe (not just what/how much grain and hops were used) and the exact same equipment, you're almost doomed to fail to make an EXACT copy

That looks great. Might have to put this on to my to-do list.
