Yeast Pitch Rate and Starter Calculator
this turned out very well, you can use any yeast you want, the chico strain will work,like US05, I like high flocculating yeast and I ferment at 60 so was trying several brands out.

I whirl-pooled at 0 until the temp reached 170ish. I strongly recommend both the first wort and the whirlpool, I actually put the hops in the mash right when I started the recirculation, the first wort will give it a clean smooth bite for the bitterness so the beer is slightly more on the bitter side that the ibu's say, I give it a 65 IBU for taste and the whirlpool will meld the hops for the very good finish, it can seem a bit strong flavored at first but after conditioning this is a darn good beer, I Like it :), keep in mind that this is a higher alcohol beer :)
