That's what I brewed yesterday except I used a bit less water and added the bittering hops 10min after the hot break.
Got around 5.2gal - OG 1.055 (recipe says OG 1.046, guess it's b/c I used about 1l less water and the efficieny was about 80% :-))
I also used Cascade AA 6.4% that means the IBU turned out to be 26 instead of 18 as it says the original recipe. Will see how it turns out. I can hear the bubbles while I write this..what a lovely sound.
