Pretty much a copy of NB;s Dead Ringer.
I dry-hopped for 7 days with 1 oz centennial pellet in each carboy.
I kegged on November 23rd. It is still a little green. I'll give it a month in the keg before trying it again.

Calculations derived from Ray Daniels' book Designing Great Beers.
Doughed in at 140F and did protein rest for 15 minutes. Recirculated to bring mash up to 154. It took nearly 30 minutes to get there.
Mashed at 154 for 60 minutes
I think my water amounts are a little high. I am not losing much to equipment loss, nor am I boiling off more than a gallon. I think I can cut my water amounts by about 1.5 gallons next time. I will verify when I move the beer from the primary to the secondary.
I put my hops in hop bags as opposed to directly into the wort
