Unemployed Artist IPA

I made up this recipe while tasting some malts I'd never used at brewbrothers. We'll see how it turns out.

Ingredients
Grain:
14 lbs GW 2row
3 lbs Bairds Marris Otter
1lbs MFB Kiln Amber
0.7 lbs Crisp Crystal Dark 77L
0.5 lbs Briess Carapils

Hops:
1 oz Nugget @ 60
1.5 oz Centennial @35
1 oz Cascade @15
1.5 oz Simcoe @3
0.5 oz Centennial dry hopped for 10 days
0.5 oz Cascade dry hopped for 10 days
0.5 oz Simcoe dry hopped for 10 days

Water:
4 gallons strike @165 for 60 min
1 gallon mash out @212 for 30 min
4 gallon double batch sparge @171

Notes:
8-10-2011--Brewing went fine, the kiln amber smells really nice. Gravity at 1.079
10-11-2011--Yummy. Bright grapefruity-simcoe taste.
