Default Too Fuggle SMASH

Recipe Type: All Grain
Yeast: Nottingham
Yeast Starter: nope
Additional Yeast or Yeast Starter: nope
Batch Size (Gallons): 5 gallon
Original Gravity: 1.042
Final Gravity: 1.002
IBU: 18-ish
Boiling Time (Minutes): 60
Color: light yellow
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 7 weeks @ 55F.
Additional Fermentation: none
Secondary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): none
Tasting Notes: Very light quaffer. BMC drinkers would like this one.

10-lbs American 2-row
1-oz uk fuggles

Mashed at 148-F with 4 gallons strike water for 90 minutes.
Batch sparged with 3 gallons water also at 148-F. for 20-30 minutes.

1-oz uk fuggle right after hot break settled down. ( 60 minutes )

whirflock tablet at 15 minute mark
rapidly chilled to pitching temp and pitched 1 Nottingham packet.

I now have a college dorm soda cooler for a fermentation chamber.
@ its lowest/warmest setting it sits @ 55-F.Primary for 7-8 weeks.
Racked to keg and force carbed for a week before drinking.

This beer would be good for somebody whom likes the BMC styles and is just getting into all grain brewing.I am not a huge fan of BMC styles but feel it is important to do SMASH brews fairly often.I personally felt this was a bland and unexciting beer,which is also how i feel about BMC however this beer didn't want me to gag like BMC does (i'n not a fan of corn/rice in beer)

Perhaps a more aggressive hop schedule would improve this beer but i was just going for easy/simple on this one.
-cheers

Did a side by side comparison the other day with this brew,a bottled budweiser,and a coors light draft.
This beer tasted more similar to the coors light draft than a budweiser.
(just figured this info might be of interest to someone)
