Looks good. Might want to sparge with hotter water. I typically use 180 or so. Might just be me but i think helps to rinse more sugar from the grain. I also do a double batxh sparge but use equal amounts of water each time. Makes for easier stiring.

Yeah, you want to hit 168 on the sparge, and I also split evenly...the crystal also seems a tad high. I usually use 0.5 lb of c60, which turns out pretty well...good hopping schedule, too

Looks like a solid recipe. Subbing small amounts of pale ale malt, vienna or munich for an equal amount of 2 row can lend a bit of complexity, but you certainly won't go wrong brewing it as you've posted. Nice hopping schedule too!

Thanks Guys its a pretty straight forward recipe, as for the sparge comments, I intended to do a mash out, raising the mash to to 168 BUT I still figuring out Beer Smith so the double sparge was calculated by the computer, but thanks for the good INFO!
