I did. Its been carbing up in a keg for about 2-3 weeks now. I need to test it again. I hope it hasnt lost too much aroma from sitting.

Awesome. I am looking forward to hearing how the aroma came out. I just dry hopped 3 oz of two different hops together and it came out EXCELLENT!! Nice stats too on the original post. Do you use Beer Smith to get all your calculations?

It looks good, only that is around 3 times as much crystal as I would use, and mashing at 155 I can't imagine this didn't turn out to be very sweet. What was your FG?

I use beersmith. Ill check out your bands on reverbnation. I am also on there.
I see most people dont like to use this much crystal. Why not?? Color? Malt flavor? My mash temp was too low? What should it have been? 159? For sweeter?

I need to look up my recipe and see what FG was. Thanks for feedback. I really appreciate it.

159 is crazy hot.. If its an IPA you should be mashing 148-150. As far as all that crystal, well, unless you like your beer to have a very sweet, syrupy quality I would cut it back.
