Recipe Type: All Grain   
Yeast: Safale US-05   
Batch Size (Gallons): 5.5   
Original Gravity: 1.056   
Final Gravity: 1.013   
IBU: 84   
Boiling Time (Minutes): 90   
Color: 13 SRM   
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): [email protected]   
Additional Fermentation: Crash cool for 36 hours   
Secondary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): [email protected]   
Tasting Notes: Crystal comes through slightly and Cascade hops gives it a nice bite.   

This turned out to be really tasty! It needs a little bit of conditioning (for me in the keg, about 3 weeks). Cascade comes through nicely for a nice piney, citrusy bite. It was supposed to be an IPA (at least 1.056 OG), but I didn't hit my OG so I called it !IPA (for the computer science geeks, ! means "not").

Code:

Batch Size: 5.50 gal (9.04 gal preboil)
Estimated OG: 1.056 SG (actual: 1.049 SG)

Estimated IBUs: 84 (Tinseth; actual: 84)
Estimated Color: 13 SRM (actual: 13 SRM)
Brewhouse Efficiency: 73% (actual: 64%)
Boil Time: 90 minutes

Grains:
10.25# Maris Otter Malt (4.0L) (91.11%)
1.00# Caramel/Crystal 90L (90.0L) (8.89%)

Hops:

1.00 oz Columbus (14.5%) @30 min
1.00 oz Cascade (5.4%) @15 min
1.00 oz Cascade (5.4%) @10 min
1.00 oz Cascade (5.4%) @5 min
1.50 oz Cascade (5.4%) (dry hop)

Yeast:
Fermentis Safale US-05 (Dry Ale)

Mash/Sparge Schedule:
Single Infusion, 153F; Batch Sparge
Mash for 60 min at 153F w/ 3.52 gal of water at 170F
Mashout w/ 1.73 gal of water at 210F; hold for 10 min
Batch sparge w/ 5.45 gal of water at 178F; hold for 10 min

Fermentation Schedule:
Primary Fermentation: 15 days @66F
Secondary Fermentation: 10 days @72F


I will brew this again, but with some slight changes. I will increase the batch size to 6 gals to account for hop absorption during the boil. I'll also increase the crystal to 15% of the grist which it seems to me many of the pros are doing to get some nice maltiness and residual sweetness in their IPAs. To keep the color similar, I'm going for a mix of C-75 and British carastan (C-37) since it's what I have on hand. I'm also reducing the IBUs slightly to 75 and increasing the OG a bit:
