Actually, it didn't quite go entirely as planned. Gravity undershot, so it won't be as awesome as DFH (were that even possible to begin with.) But still, the name must live on, because I can't wait to see what Erin does with the label design.
The recipe is below. And yes, you read that right: hop additions every ten minutes, to get something like a continuous hopping over a 90 minute boil. All the hops went into a single bowl and I measured out about .4oz every ten minutes. To match predicted IBU I entered all the additions laboriously into BeerSmith. (Would it kill him to add a cut/paste function?)
The real DFH90 is Amarillo, Simcoe and Warrior. This beer is Amarillo, Galena and Northern Brewer. The malt bill is pretty comparable though, especially the Thomas Fawcett Amber (yes, that stuff again.)
Some stuff in the recipe notes about other difficulties I had today, including stuck sparge. It's a good bet that this won't be the clearest beer I've ever brewed.

Mash difficulties: Undershot mash temp (144), added ~1 gal boiling water to get 151. Halfway into mash, temp was back down in the 145 range. Carried on anyway. No sparge water, added water balance to mash out (which only hit 162.) Oh, and a stuck sparge too..
Got ~7gal at 1.067, added 3/8 gal to get to 7.3gal @ 1.063.
Lots of hot break in the wort. Significant undershoot on gravity! Trub loss 0.75gal (and that's picking up a lot of muck.)
