This is going down this weekend. I only have a pound of Black Patent, but I'm going to scale down to 5 gallons, and I have better efficiency, so I should be close.

Can't wait.

I'm a little concerned with the low mash temp and it finishing too low.

I brewed this about 10 months ago and had a bottle (only one more left) of this last night. IMO, stick with the recipe and the mash temp. The carapils and probably wheat help to balance the recipe as it isn't overly dry and has a really nice mouthfeel. In fact from my taste of it last night I wouldn't put "dry" as a tasting note for this brew. It is rich and full flavored. A great one for a 22.

I would definitely rebrew this one myself; was actually considering when I will rebrew just last night!

What am I missing, when I plug 30g of Nugget in at 90min. I only get 24ibu's.

Why nugget? The recipe calls for Galena.

Nevermind, stupid Beersmith 2 and it's equipment profiles. I figured it out.

I've brewed this recipe 3 times now and it is still one of my favorites. I agree with sticking with the mash temperature, you don't want any extra residual sugars. You will love it!

Awesome can't wait. I guess my only concern is I'm using S-04 so I'm not sure if it attenuates differently than 002.

I almost think that when I brewed this I couldn't get 002 or similar so I had to go with s04... 99% sure that was the case. You should be fine.

Ok, so I brewed this.. and I haven't really dialed in 90 min. boils on my system. Add the fact that it was quite cold here, and I couldn't actually see the boil for the steam.. my OG was 1.080!!!! I added a gallon of water, to hopefully bring it down.
