Default Black IPA Recipe...need your input.

Ok this is my first recipe to put together with out basing it off of an existing recipe. I have used all of these malts except for the honey malt. Going for a big Black IPA that has malts to backup the strong hop flavor. I would like your input and ideas on this.

Thanks
Paul

P.S. thanks BrewMate

This recipe looks good to me. I just question the magnum hops, since everything else you are using is a Washington State (Yakima Valley) variety why not use Columbus (Tomahawk) for bittering. to keep with the Cascadia theme.

I just brewed a similar recipe. My 2 cents would be to mash 149 or 150. Gets more fermentables. Mash the light grains then put the dark grains in during ramp up to mash out temp, while recirculating (if that's possible). Your recipe looks fantastic.

kinda low on the bittering hops. if i'm reading that right your only using 0.3oz, I put 1oz of Summit @ 60min in mine & while it gave it a nice IPA bitterness it didn't overpower the roastyness of the malt flavor. just my opinon, i'm sure it will turn out fine.

The /gal behind the amount of hops denotes 1 gallon. This is a 6.1 gallon batch that puts me at 1.83 for my bittering hops(I plugged in 2 oz) This is my first time using this software, so not sure why it changed my original bittering additions from 2 oz to 1.83 oz.
