Default Critique my AG brown ale recipe

This is my first AG recipe (actually, my first period) and I just want to make sure I'm not missing anything or going to end up with something that will suck ass. I don't want anything too hoppy because I plan on doing a secondary on half the batch broken up with some different liquors and I don't want the hops to override the liquor flavor.

Looks like a pretty basic yet tasty brown ale recipe.

grain bill looks tasty, I'd prefer a UK base malt if you're going for an english brown (which is kinda what it looks like) in lieu of that, maybe toss in 4oz of biscuit malt, or even better brown malt, to add the toastyness that is in darker-kilned UK pale malts.

Another sub I'd do is replace the nottingham with s-04 yeast, to give some extra english character.

If you're not going for english, ignore these comments, heh.
