Pale Malt wont make a big difference; you will be fine. The OG difference is probably due to efficiency. What do you have your default set as?

I usually let it primary for around 14 days, rack to a keg or secondary, and then dryhop. I have drank it as young as about 3 weeks and it was good, but it gets really good a couple weeks later.

Sweet. Sorry - 70% efficiency; I thought that is what you had too.

I think mine was based on 75%.

Brewed the AG recipe from page 1 with S-04 fermented at 64deg F. Holy crap! Awesome stuff! Definitely on my list of beers to NEVER run out of.

I've brewed this a few times now and absolutely love it, even changed out the hops a few times the latest being zythos and it's delicious. The only difference I can detect between the real thing and this recipe with citra hops is SRM.. Mine always turns out quite a bit darker than FFF-ZD. Has anyone else noticed this or had similar results? Either way, thanks a ton for the great recipe.

So is the consensus that Wyeast 1968 is the yeast to use? Want to try this over the weekend. Thanks

That's what I use when I brew this one.

I used S04 at 64 DegF and it turned out great. It works fast and clears out very nicely, in my case no need for a secondary. I really didn't notice much imparted taste and if there was any it worked very nicely. I'll be using S04 again. Whatever you do make sure you can control your ferm temp.

do you use a starter? i would think that would get it below the suggested final gravity

Yeah, I always use starters. No problems hitting my numbers.
