Would definitely need to increase the flameout addition to at least 1-1.5g/L and chuck in around the same amount of cascade/chinook at 10min as well.

Might even want to throw some more hops in earlier on to increase the bitterness to around 40IBU.

I'm sure someone has a more accurate IBU level for the real deal but it would definintely be too sweet without anything else.

Ok, well like I said I got the recipe from the owner of my LHBS I don't know if it is a little creatures clone as I've never tried LCPA that's just what he called it. I was thinking it wasn't complete because I had forgotten the yeast..

I didn't even do a boil on this just did it noob style into the fermenter with a jug of boiling water, added the tea bag and 21L water whisked the crap out of it added the yeast and let it be.

well u used a kit so that should sort out bitterness. but LCPA is a hoppy beer with aroma and flavour. should still be drinkable but next time do a 30 min boil and do the additions sponge said. consider steeping grain too.

Perfect example of why people need to test and try recipes before randomly throwing shit on the database.

And also a good reason why you dont wanna listen to your local home brew guy, Paulie, he obviously doesnt know his dick from his ear.

Just thinking (although i dont know exact numbers) that the kits would only be around 25IBU or so?

Happy to be proven wrong though since I'm just pulling out numbers now...

I know theyre posted somewhere but really cbf looking for them.

Either way, definitely need to up the late additions a fair bit.

The above post would be a pretty good starting point, along with buying yourself some real LCPA to try.

I have tried it that's why it says tasty in the description...and I think my LHBS guy is more of a spirits guy and just follows recipes he gets of the manufacturer...

If you haven't brewed it, what's to discuss?

If you want feedback or help with a recipe, there are plenty of other threads people have started just asking for help. Start your own or search for an already existing thread and post for feedback. Plenty will offer advice (some good, some bad but that's life).

No wish to be an arsehole or belittle anyone but please - the database should be for recipes you have made and believe are worth passing onto others, not something someone, somewhere told you about. Think of a recipe book - you reckon any book worth its salt hasn't seen those recipes made dozens of times prior to publishing?

I know you're new so please don't let this post make you feel unwelcome or like you shouldn't post. More kit and extract brews that ARE tried and tested would probably be very welcome to many in a sea of AG recipes (although versions of most AG recipes can be made with extract/kit and spec grains) so please brew this (or something else), tweak it and then post when you think you're onto a winner.
