Some thoughts: 90 minute boil really is not necessary in this case since you are extract brewing. Drop the boil to 60 minutes, skip the FWH hop addition and revise the remaining additions to bring your IBUs inline as required. You're also gonna want a nice big starter for that gravity.
Thanks for the tips! I will toy around with the hops to see about adjusting that.
For the starter, would you recomend doing one starter and stepping it up, or maybe two different starters?
Also, do you think 10 weeks will be long enough for this beer to age? Am I on the right track as far as steeping the specialty grains?
