6.6lb Light LME
1 lb Golden DME
Spec Grains
1lb Caramel 40L
8oz. Victory

60 min boil. 2 gal. for 5 gal batch

60min 1.5oz Centannial whole 11.6
60min 2 oz cascade pellet 5.0
30 min 1 oz centennial whole 11.6
15 min centennial whole 11.6
5 min willamette pellet 4.6
dry hop 7 days 1 oz centennial whole 11.6
secondary 14 to 21 days

nottingham yeast

this is an IPA Kit that I just took some of the parts of just the grains and malts, ignored some of them (most of the hops) and added some to make an APA. according to my calc this should come out to 63.2 IBU 6 SRM 5.9% ABV OG - 1.059 FG - 1.015.
My question is will the combination of ingredients and the schedule produce a nice hoppy ale that is still drinkable. What I am going for here is like a 2 hearted ale with a bit more character. Only other ingred. I have that I could play with are come Columbus Hop pellets and some more cascade hop pellets. any advise would be welcome
Looks good to me! The only change I would make would be to up the centennial at 60 and put more cascade toward the end. Low alpha on the cascade means more waste when used as bittering in my opinion...

@borovy3488 - Full boil is ALWAYS better. With a turkey fryer, go for it!

@whclay - I'd say your in IPA territory with your IBUs there. Looks like it'll be pretty hoppy, potentially unbalanced (not necessarily bad if you're a hop head, but I doubt you'll have much malt backbone here), maybe too bitter.. You've got 3.5 oz of hops @ 60 minutes for only 1.059 SG - in my opinion, that's way too much for bitter. I can't calculate it out right now as I'm at work, but I'd move at least 1.5 oz to later in the boil (or even for dry hopping). Also, 30 minute additions really don't give you much, IMHO, in the way of flavor, aroma, or bitterness... I stick with 60, 15, 10, 5, or flame out. Your grain bill looks fine but I'd alter your hop schedule some. Just my .02

LHBS has what I need, so batch #3 is gonna be an Abita Turbodog clone. I'm using the recipe from BYO that was posted here, but opting for the german ale yeast.

Dry stout is boiling right now.

Tried a step mash for the first time. Messed up on the temp of the second infusion by a lot. It was supposed to be a 120 -> 152 mash, but it ended up being more of a 120 -> 140 -> 152 mash. Now I know!

Here's a pic of the runnings from the mash:
