Default Tell me how this sounds SMASH

First off. Hello everyone. This is my first post, but I've been lurking for a while now. This is my second attempt at making beer. My first attempt was a horrible failure. It was just plain nasty. Coopers IPA with 3# amber DME and 3# dextrose. Took questionable advice and as it turns out I didn't add enough yeast and went about it entirely wrong. Sooooooooo...... here is what I'm trying now. 7# Light DME 2oz Centennial pellets. 1 oz@60, .5 oz@30, .25oz@15 and .25oz at flame out. pitched nottingham yeast starter. Does this sound reasonable? OG 1.065. It is very loosely based on EdWort's Haus Pale Ale. Thanks in advance.
Chris

Sounds good, but you shouldn't make a starter with dry yeast. There is already enough yeast in a dry yeast packet to ferment normal gravity beers, and unless you are making 3 plus gallon starters, you may be doing more damage to the yeast than if you had just pitched it as is.

BTW welcome.

Welcome to HBT!

Yep, the recipe sounds good. Don't rush the process and you should end up with some tasty beer.

I spent many of hours at Big Lake as a kid and had lots of fun!

Thanks a bunch for the replies. I should have said re-hydrated nottingham, not starter...don't know what I was thinking. Anyhow it's downstairs bubbling away. Smells fantastic. BTW Big Lake is still a lot of fun!!

Just bottled this batch today. FG of 1.016. Sample tasted good. We'll see how it comes out in few weeks.

Nice, but I wonder about the use of the term "SMaSH" when it's an extract batch. Since we don't really know what malt(s) are in the extract, I don't think you can say that it's truly a Single Malt and Single Hop.

IMHO, the proper name for your brew is "SEaSH".

I did a similar batch - http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f37/extr...sh-ipa-146544/ People suggested calling it SMeSH or eSMaSH.

Been lazy about bottling it, but will know soon enough how it turned out.
