Looks pretty face-meltingly awesome to me!

One thing I'd change (and it's not a big deal really) is take out that Cara-Pils; I personally never use it. The crystal 60L will give you the same effect of head retention and body.

Otherwise, yeah.... do it and let us know how great it is!

I just got a couple pounds of Amarillo from Hops Direct -- just so you know, you're likely to get 7.5%AA Amarillo, regardless of the %AA listed on the site. So adjust your quantities as such.

I've got a suggestion and a question. First, the suggestion, change the amber DME to light DME. There's really no noeed for the amber and if the beer turns out awesome, it will be easier to convert it to completely grain when you get a bigger mash tun. Secondly, the question. What do you mean by "s-05 prepped a few days out"? Dry yeast should not be used with a starter, if that's what you're planning. Just pitch two packets. It's probably cheaper doing that than paying for the extract in a starter anyway, and definitely easier.

Are you sure you want to add a tablespoon of gypsym to the mash? Seems a bit much to me... teaspoon maybe, depends on your water.

Yea, you may want to err on the lower side with the gypsum, especially with IBUs that high, the bitterness could get overly harsh. Other than that, it looks like a winner

RGR on the 1 tsp typo on my part thanks. And will do on the light DME. As far as the S-05 I was going to do a starter with it since my OG is estimated around 1.090. Should I just switch this to Liquid yeast and a starter or is just re-hydrating 2 packets of s-05 good enough?

Two packets is good. Take a look at this handy tool for future reference: Mr Malty Pitching Rate Calculator
