I'm working out the recipe for a Pale Ale I'm brewing tomorrow and trying to figure out where I want to mash at for it to get where I want it to be. I'm basically trying to get the overall body and...

the two things that make sense off what you said, higher than ideal FG and that's a low IBU for an APA. Try holding your fermentation at 64 like you did for 3-4 days then let it climb up to about 70...

holy IBU's! I might adjust that around if I was you if it really is 156IBU, that's how much I'm cramming into my 9%abv Rye Double IPA. Might dial that down just a touch. Most American IPAs check...

you could do a light saison. Use Pils, Wheat, and about a 10% dose of Honey Malt. Ferment with 3711 (it'll take MAYBE 5 days at most if you keep it in a warm room wrapped with a blanket) and bam! ...
