Fuggles will work great. Flaked corn has been pre gelatinized and is unique to homebrewing. Stick with the ingredients listed (except the fuggles of course) and you'll be golden.

Alright, sounds good. I also plan on using notti since my brew supply doesn't stock s-05 or 04

Good choice. I actually liked it a bit better w/ Notty.

I'll be brewing this one either tomorrow or Saturday depending on how far along my yeast starter is. This is the first time I'll be using a starter and I'm hoping to have some good results.

Hopefully this beer will be ready to be handed around to the family during Christmas.

Any idea if sterling hops (6.0%) would turn out well in something like this?... recently, the wrong hops were purchased for me by accident. Been looking for a use... I have 2oz. I read online that the flavor is a cross between saaz and mt. hood which is right by what I've read, but the acid % is higher.

Excited. This will be my 2nd AG... and for less than 10 bucks!

I have brewed 4 batches of this now (slight variations) and all I have left is the few six's I set back on the shelf and the batch in my secondary. it goes fast. This brew was the first keg to pop at my very first beer festival and the crowd sucked down two more at the next festival. Now my friends are brewing this one. I only wish I could make this less citrusy. Each batch has a distinct citrus quality from the hops that I would like to tone down just a bit.

Glad to hear it's a hit and spreading around.
Maybe replace the Crystal hops with some Tett or hallertau will tone back the citrus that you're getting.

I brewed this on 11-18 and just moved it to the secondary today. I had 10 gallons split between two carboys. One carboy had krausen to the top and the other only formed a ring at beer level.I did use blow off tubes on them.My original sg was 1.061 and now on the high krausen its 1.007 on the lower one its 1.013. I added some of the trub from the high krausen to the the slow poke and I hope that it drops my sg a little lower. I plan to serve it up for my superbowl/birthday party and try to convert some of my bmc friends Thanks BierMuncher for the great recipes.
