Recipe Type: All Grain   
Yeast: Chico (US-05/WLP001/WY1056)   
Yeast Starter: Definitely   
Batch Size (Gallons): 8.5   
Original Gravity: 1.074   
Final Gravity: 1.013   
IBU: 70\'s   
Boiling Time (Minutes): 60   
Color: 8 SRM   
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 8 @ 64   
Secondary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 3-5 @ 68-70   
Tasting Notes: Sweet, not overly dry, pleasing floral, slightly earthy aroma, very smooth bitterness   

47.1% American 2-row 12lbs.
47.1% British Pale Ale 12lbs.
5.9% American Crystal 40 1.5lbs.

Mash at 153-154 (60m) to maintain some malt characteristics. I FWH and you can bitter with CTZ or anything you want, but I'd go for a low cohumulone hop since the IBU's are way up there.

Brewhouse efficiency: 71%

Hops------------Form--Bag?--Oz--Time--Percent a-Acid
Nugget----------Pellet-No----3.00-FWH--12.30
Nugget----------Pellet-No----1.00-30----12.30
Nugget----------Pellet-No----1.00-10----12.30
Nugget----------Pellet-No----1.00-1-----12.30
Nugget----------Pellet-No----2.00-Dry---12.30

Make a big enough starter per mrmalty.com or your own experience. I used chico (S05) repitch made into a starter per mrmalty. I don't like a big beer like this to dry out too far, so don't mash too low unless you're using a lower attenuating yeast. S04 or WLP002 would be fine as well. I've also used a Kolsch yeast on this (WLP029) and ferm'd in the low 60's with excellent results.

I primary just until it hits FG (stable) then rack to secondary at about room temp and dry-hop for 3+ days. I've also thrown an ounce into the keg in a hop bag at times to keep the aroma. It certainly doesn't hurt.

Cold crash it for 2+ days at about 38 if you can so it drops clear. Use finings if you want/care.

5.25G batch would look something like this:

47.2% American 2-row 7.5lbs.
47.2% British Pale Ale 7.5lbs.
5.7% American Crystal 40 0.9lbs.

Hops------------Form--Bag?--Oz--Time--Percent a-Acid
Nugget----------Pellet-No----2.00-FWH--12.30
Nugget----------Pellet-No----0.60-30----12.30
Nugget----------Pellet-No----0.60-10----12.30
Nugget----------Pellet-No----0.60-1-----12.30
Nugget----------Pellet-No----1.25-Dry---12.30

Reminds me of a Fresh Hop fest about five years ago. There was a delicious All-Nugget IPA on tap.

It was my first big beer, based on Yooper's Stone Ruination clone but just using the hops I had on hand, plus I like Pale Ale malt. It turned out so good that even people who told me they "don't like IPA's" said, "but I like THIS!"

So I thought I'd share.

Could be done as ALMOST a SMaSH if you use just one base malt then a touch of crystal...so it's an easy beer to make.
