Ok I'm just going to do a gallon and I'm thinking very simple
So looking at 1.25 lbs of mde made up of dark and extra dark DME about 50/50
Hopping with fuggles about 1oz at start of 1 hour boil and an other 1oz about 5 minutes from the end
Using Youngs yeast

Has anyone any advice like I said very simple

That's gonna make a hop head's delight... 2 oz in a gallon. Way too hoppy for me. If I figure it right it's over 110 IBU.

Plug in your numbers and see what comes out;

I'm not into very hoppy stuff and usually shoot for 20 IBU's.. But that is just after years of drinking and enjoying higher hop levels.

Cheers

I'm sure it would work great but it's based on the US
So I'm not sure what my malt and yeast come up as being from the UK
But I believe your right and it would be very hoppy
I may cut back and do .5 oz but for 30 mins and .5 for 10 mins
