Here's the recipe I ended up with. I started of with Jamil Zainasheff's RIS recipe (Jamil's Brewing Network Program Recipes
), scaled it to 5.5 gal, and changed it for my efficiency.

The LME is a conversion of the extra 7.15 lb of Pale Malt that wouldn't fit in my MLT. It looks like the 0.75 conversion factor given by LordHedgie is pretty close for me.
VTBrewer, thanks for the tip on BrewBlogger. It looks pretty cool, and I always appreciate open source code. I'll install it on my server and play around with it. I've been wanting a common way to view recipes on both my desktop and my laptop. This might work great for me.
