This year I think that I will finally develop an invisible cardigan and my project to extract gold from spiders legs will also reap great rewards.

Fair shout, BUT: 51 IBU in a wort starting at 1.040 that was mashed at 64 C and is gonna be highly fermentable, and could well end up at 1.009 or 1.008, without any significant malty kick, sounds like it will be too bitter. And when I say 'too bitter', this is from the will it be nice to drink guidelines, not a set of competition judging guidelines.

I'm actually drinking something similar which I am enjoying, after a few recent issues, it's probably the best beer I have made for some time. Shit loads of Yankee hops help though....

That sounds very different.... I also did a 1.040 session IPA with loads of centennial, simcoe, calypso etc and had a higher bU than GU, but I wasn't trying to make a bog standard bitter.

My bog standard bitter is the same grain bill as matt but I bitter with challenger and finish with styrian goldings. I only bitter this to around 20-25 ibus I have gone higher but like the balance as is
