I'm trying to make something close to Alpha King. I looked at the recipe here: http://brew365.com/beer_three_floyds_alpha_king.php and I have most of the ingredients, but my LHBS is closed and I'm a bit shy of a few things...

Here's what I have:

6.6 lbs Light LME
3 lbs Plain Light DME
1 lbs Munich
1 lbs Special B
1 lbs Crystal

4 oz Centennial Pellets
4 oz Centennial Leaf
1 oz Warrior
1 oz Cascade pellets
4 oz Cascade leaf
1 oz Columbus

Just tried Beersmith conversion for 12 lbs 2 row, and it gave me about 10 lbs Pale LME. Based on that, I was thinking of doing something like this:

Partial boil of 3 gallons, 5 gallon batch

1 lb Crystal
1/4 lbs Special B
1/4 lbs Munich

3 lbs DME at boil
1 oz Centennial (60 min)
.5 oz Warrior (30 min)
1 oz Cascade (15 min)
1.5 oz Centennial (5 min)
6.6 lbs LME at flame out
1 oz Centennial (dry hop)
1 oz Columbus (dry hop)

S05 yeast

I've never tried to create or modify any recipes before so I'm kind of winging it here... I'm not trying to clone Alpha King, just get a deliciously hoppy APA inspired by it.

Any thoughts?
