Thanks, I actually decided to replace the Maris Otter with Vienna malt, and was told to only do 6 oz dry hop, so I replaced the 5 min Cascade with 3 oz of fresh Cascade and Mosaic. Made a bunch of mistakes during the mash (temperature too high so had to drop it with another gallon of cool water), ended up with 9 gallons of wort and did a 3 hour boil to get it all the way down. Ended up with only a 1.074 OG. Even with all of that I still had a gallon of 1.040 wort that I saved for a starter this Thursday. Oh, and no one mentioned just how much more difficult it is to cool wort with that amount of fresh hops either. They have a nice heat capacity but low conductivity.
This beer better be damned good, otherwise I will hate it for all of the work I had to go through.
