Adding hops at 45min is basically the same as 60 with less utilization. I have seen fat tire clones with IBUs all over the map, but from tasting I would target around 20. Also, I think they use willamette as their finishing hop, not fuggles. And Willamette is so cheap right now anyway.

Maybe something like:
1oz Willamette (90)
.5oz Willamette (25)
.5oz Willamette (10)

Otherwise, I totally agree with Logan above.

You shouldn't need yeast nutrient with that much sorghum, too much FAN can cause a metallic taste. Also, I will reiterate my recommendation of S-33 yeast, even though you didn't mention a yeast. S-33 is the cheapest!

Nice, I'm going to add this to my list for future brewing. Good point on the hops, less IBU's ought to give it that "malty" taste

Oh- the one I listed above was for a partial boil. If you are doing a full boil bump each hop addition down .25 oz and you should still be around 20 IBU's

Good point. +1, except I would leave the second two additions alone. They are not for IBUs. Just mess with the first addition.

Like I said a friend picked up certain ingredients and wants me to brew this. I cant afford to be adding other things to it, I have no money. The yeast he got from the shop was the Fermentis US5. I told him to get Wyeast 1056 but he had no way to keep it cool on the ride over. Were in Phoenix. I just have to make due with what I have and so what if it isnt Fat Tire. More or less he just wants this to be a full bodied GF beer his wife will enjoy.

He made the right choice, Wyeast is not gluten free.

Either way, you are going to make beer.

So does the BRS need to go in late in the boil? I noticed on the schedule someone posted that I should add the BRS with my last hop addition.

You don't have to, it will only help with hop utilization- but it isn't necessary.
