Here is the recipe I am going to try.

7.00 lbs Pilsner DME
1.00 lb Light Candi Sugar
0.50 lb Biscuit Malt
0.50 Vienna Malt
0.25 lb Crystal 10L

1.00 oz Northern Brewer @ 60 mins.
Yeast - WLP 550

I am going to steep the grains at 150 for 30 minutes then add the DME and sugar after I get the wort boiling.

With the program I used to make the recipe it gave me:
IBUs - 26
SRM - 6.4
OG - 1.064
FG - 1.016

So brew day was a blast. Had a minor mishap with the wort chiller, had the out tube blow off and the chiller was shooting water all over my kitchen. Everything got drenched. Other than that the beer tasted fantastic, slightly under attenuated, should have made a starter but live and learn. Overall I think my dad liked brewing. Going to ship some to him so he can enjoy our beer.
