This was a partial mash with late extract addition and a non-full boil, scale your hopping accordingly! The brew turned out great, a light bodied, easy drinking 90 degree weather beer but with more flavor than your BMC! FWIW, my boil volume was 3.5 gallons.

Partial Mash:
3 lb. 2-Row 2.0L 37ppg
2 lb. Vienna 4.0L 35 ppg
1 lb. Flaked Maize 1.0L 40 ppg

Mash at 150F for 50 mins and batch sparge with 170F water.

1 oz. Liberty Pellets 3.6%AA - 75 min
0.5 oz. Liberty Pellets 3.6%AA - 1 min

Boil Extracts:
1 lb Briess Pilsen DME - add with 15 mins remaining on boil
0.5 lb Corn Sugar - add with 15 mins remaining on boil

1 tsp Irish Moss -15 min

~4.8oz. corn sugar for moderate-high carbonation

4.8% ABV
140 kcal per 12 fl. oz.

The beer took a while to carbonate with the very high flocculating Nottingham
