You may want to drop your efficiency down a bit--say 65% or so? It is your first AG after all. That is what people have suggested to me and I haven't done my first AG yet.

I also would raise the sparge temp to at least 180. My efficiency on the first try was less than 75% but then you have a Barley Crusher and I was using the LBS crush.

This recipe looks oddly familiar, it is just missing some coriander and orange peel and dry hopped with more cascades.

But at any rate this should be a great beer, but I love Cascades so don't take my word for anything.

It's actually based off of a Beersmith sample recipe, but modified quite a bit.

I agree with others watch your efficiency with batch sparge, I usually get 68-70 percent.
