Default Big Dark Hoppy Ale

Have some extra indregients lying around and it'll be a while before I can brew again, so I figured I'd make a big Black IPA/Cascadian Dark Ale/American Black Ale. I like mine that aren't just IPA's with black food coloring in them. Figured this malt bill will be a bit more robust and spicy.

For a 2.5 gallon partial mash batch:

% LB OZ MALT OR FERMENTABLE PPG °L

33% 3 0 Munton's DME Light 34 5

28% 2 8 American Two-row Pale info 37 1

22% 2 0 Munich Malt - 10L 35 10

11% 1 0 Vienna Malt 36 3

6% 0 8 Rye, Flaked 36 2

+ 3 oz cold steeped roasted barley prepared night before, could use suggestions on how much water to steep them in

Got a combo of "C" and European hops extra, thinking of this hopping schedule. Trying for more hop flavor/aroma than just straight up bitterness. Don't know if these hop combos would taste funky. Rather not buy more hops, but if the overall flavor would be terrible I'll get more cascade/centennial I guess.

USE TIME OZ VARIETY FORM AA

boil 40 mins 1.0 Centennial pellet 10.3

boil 25 mins 0.5 Cascade pellet 5.0

boil 20 mins 0.5 Hallertau pellet 3.8

boil 15 mins 0.5 Citra pellet 12.3

boil 10 mins 0.5 Hallertau pellet 3.8

boil 5 mins 0.5 Citra pellet 12.3

boil 1 min 1.0 Cascade leaf 5.0

Whirlpool: 1 oz hersbrucker

Dry hop: 1 oz centennial leaves and 1oz saaz

Use US-05 yeast
