I went into my LHBS today 10 min before they closed and of course they didn't have the hops for the recipe I was going to brew today. On the fly and pulled this out of my a$$. Anyone know what it could turn out as?

11 lbs Maris Otter pale malt
1 lb Vienna
1 lb Crystal 10 L
1 oz Cascade (60 min)
.5 oz Cascade (30 min)
.5 oz Cascade (5 min)

Mash at 154

That's what I was going for but when I came home and plugged it into Beersmith it gave me an est org. gravity of 1.073. There's no way this can me right.

Depends on your efficiency, I guess! I use about 12 pounds of grain (almost all MO) for my AB clone, and it gives me an OG of 1.065 with about 75% efficiency.

For most of my pale ales, I use 10-12 pounds of grain.

Sounds a lot like my SMaSH IPA, except I used all US Pale Ale Malt, toasted some in the oven, and doubled the Cascades. Mash 150F, OG 1.072 (!), WLP001 at 68F, and it's still actively fermenting a week later. Next weekend I'll rack it onto another ounce of Cascades.

A strong pale ale. More hops should make it a nice IPA.

+1 Looks like a pale ale to me. A hybrid tho, Brit base grain and American hops. It should be good
