Well, there you have it. It should be a pretty decent recipe. I still don't have a malt mill, so I have to drive down to the homebrew shop first thing tomorrow morning to get them to grind my grains. I've been working on my own "Easymasher" style setup, but I ran into a few problems so I don't have a viable sparge system. Thus, I shall just batch sparge and that will have to do. Oh well.

Its an all fuggles hop recipe, I plan on making a similar beer later down the line with all goldings, try to taste the difference.
