Boil another 20 minutes, add remaining Fuggles and remove from heat. Cool to about 70° F and transfer..." Does this mean the DME is added before the boil actually gets going? Also, according to this recipe, the boil goes a full hour after the first hops and irish moss addition before the next hops additions... am I reading this correctly? I'm just getting started in the hobby, and I'm so locked into the traditional "1 hour boil" schedule that any departure sets off alarms in my dimly lit head. Thanks for the help!
I think they mean to boil just for 60 minutes, but it certainly is weird! I'd change it to just this:

60 minutes: willamette
20 minutes: fuggles
15 minutes: Irish moss
0 minutes: fuggles

It is worded rather poorly, thanks for helping out! I've been dying for Fat Tire ever since I used to tour through areas that had it...now that I'm slowly understanding brewing, I may take matters into my own hands

This is bad, I've my first batch still in primary, and I already have my next 4 brews planned...

FYI, BYO magazine has since published a clone which was given to them by New Belgium. They gave:

Target 60min
Willamette 10min
Golding Flameout

Total IBU is 17.

I'm brewing this recipe this week and it seems to have been accepted as the closest recipe. I think someone posted the entire thing on here somewhere. If not, I'll do it once I get it done.

This is the AHS kit I got:
8.25 lb Pale
1 lb Munich
6 oz Victory
8 oz Crystal 75L

.75 oz Target 60min
.5 oz Willamette 10min
.5 oz Kent Golding 0min

Mash at 150

White Labs California Ale V 051 or Wyeast American Ale II 1272 or Dry Nottingham

This kit was close but at the time I didn't have a real Fat Tire to compare.

I was going to wait until I get to taste and compare it to post the recipe and my notes. Give me a couple more days. I just put it on to carb yesterday and should be drinking it early next week.

The recipe I used was almost exactly the same as this one.
