I've been looking for a first AG recipe to brew this weekend and I thought I had found it with the Summer IPA recipe from Brew 365.com. Here's the recipe

When I run this sucka through Tasty Brew as a 5 gallon batch with 75% effifiency, I get an OG of 1.085! 8% alchohol. This is obviously not what the recipe intends. The recipe's own calculation says it should have an OG of 1.066 and a FG of 1.012 or so. Am I shrooming out? I spent all weekend finishing up my thesis, so maybe I blew a fuse in my brain. Is tasty brew broken? Can someone run this through a brewing program and help me try to figure this out? The description of this recipe from the site make sit sound like a nice first AG, just in time for summer weather. But I dunno...
