Procedure:

1. Prepare yeast according to manufacturers instructions.
2. Heat 14qt water to 173°F. (target water temperature of 154°F for 60 minutes)
3. Add grains, stirring until well blended.
4. Stir mash and check temperature every 20 minutes. If temperature is lower than 154F, add hot water to reach target of 154F.
5. At 40 minutes, begin heating sparge water (7 1/2 qt) to 175°F.
6. At 60 minutes, drain into boiling pot.
NOTES:
Ensure boiling pot can hold a minimum of 6 gallons.
Place a small piece of aluminum foil on top of grain bed to avoid direct pour of sparge water onto grain bed.
Drain first running's into a small pan and pour back onto grains to avoid excessive grain hulls into wort.
7. Slowly pour sparge water onto aluminum foil. Water level should stay around 1" on top of grain bed.
8. Boil wort for 60 minutes, adding hops and additions accordingly.
9. At the end of 60 minute boil, cool wort rapidly to 75-85F.
NOTE: Everything that comes into contact with wort must be sterilized from this point on!
10. Add cooled wort to sterilized fermentator.
11. Take gravity reading.
12. Pitch yeast.

After fermentation is complete, mix priming sugar and 1 cup water and boil for 5 minutes. Add priming solution to sterilized bottling bucket and siphon beer into the bucket. Wait about 15-20 minutes to bottle.

Nice color, mouthfeel, medium maltiness and good head retention. Subtile earthy hop flavor that is just enough to place it in the IPA category. I would personally stick with the recipe but add 1 oz of Falconer's Flight as a dry hop just to kick it up a notch. Good recipe in general and was a crowd pleaser at my 4th of July party.
