Last Red Cent Imperial NW Red 2.2

I love this beer. I just ran out so I brewed it again. Same recipe as before but this time only 5 gallons

12.28 lbs 2-row
2 lbs Light Munich
.5 lbs Crystal 30
.5 lbs Crystal 50-60
.5 lbs Crystal 120
0.24 lbs Pale Chocolate

1 oz Millennium @60
1 oz Nugget @30
.5 oz Cascade @10
.5 oz Cascade @0

Wyeast Irish Ale 1084 yeast slurry

6 gallons strike at 175 for 60 min 
2.7 gallons double batch sparge at 190

1/4 teaspoon Wyeast Yeast Nutrient

3-6-2011--Brewing went quickly. Preboil gravity was an adjusted 1.063. I'm fairly certain the post boil gravity reading was off since the post boil (1.062) was lower than the adjusted preboil. Filled just over 5 gallons.
3-13-2011--I'm sure it's finished fermenting and I probably should keg it, but I'm a little busy right now with baseball (coaching two teams). I'll keg it this weekend.
4-4-2011--Really good. Just like the last one.
