What's your batch size? 15lbs is a lot to just get 1.054. Seems like a waste of about 5lbs of grain. Guess i need to read up on no sparge.

Is this no chill? Just for hop schedule factors.

5.25 gallons. I work at the LHBS so I'm not worried about cost.

Yes, it is no chill. I never post what my actual hop schedule is when I post a recipe as 99% of people here chill rapidly.

Ours are 11.1 AA.

Well I might take the addition at 20 and put it at 10 and 5 to get some more of those lemon flavors, hell I might even get rid of the 60min addition all together and put that in at the end as well. 15lbs of vienna is a lot, traditionally I think of SMASH beers as more like session beers but why not make a big beer. The IBUs should balance the maltiness but it's not going to be terribly bitter with that grain bill. With a SMASH typically I think you want to showcase the hops so doing later additions is probably a good idea especially if your doing no chill, you might even consider doing flameout additions because of no chill.

If I split and do 10 and 5 then those convert to FWH and Dry Hop in No Chill, both of which I'm already doing. A 20 minute addition is just like a flameout in no chill. I turn off the burner and throw them in, but they are hotter for much longer. It's the last point that a no chill brewer can add hops to the boil.

And like I said, I'm doing a no sparge so it only calculates to 5% ABV.

I think it looks good. You would be the best at determining if the hop bill is what it should be and if it will actually work in the no chill scenario. If it were me I might mash at a slightly higher temp say 154 but that's a rather small difference. What temp do you plan to ferment at?

I was debating on the mash temp. I decided to go with S04 after I posted this and figured a little lower mash temp would help with the fermentables since the attenuation is less with that yeast.
