Default First selfmade recipe, first AG

Alright, my first AG is coming up and I've come up with my very own AG northern english brown recipe. All suggestions are welcome!

Grain:
8.0 lbs Maris Otter
0.5 lbs Biscuit
0.25 lbs Chocolate Malt
0.75 lbs Crystal 60
0.5 lbs Wheat Malt

Hops:
1 oz EKG 9 (~7.3 AA)
1 oz Fuggles (~3.5 AA)

Volume: 5.5 gal
OG: 1.051
IBU: 27
Yeast: 2 Packets Danstar Nottingham, maybe a wyeast british ale yeast, I'm undecided

Single infusion mash, batch sparge.


Hops will probably be split 50/50 between 60 min and 15 min additions because the EKG available to me are a little high in AA - perhaps i'll use all the EKG at 60 and the fuggles at 15, not sure.

It's based roughly on a Brooklyn Brown recipe, made a little smaller with some lighter hopping via english hop varieties and english pale malt

I say Fuggle @60 and EKG @15 and go with a nice english yeast like 1968 or 1098.

I say add some Special Roast to the grain bill somehow. It adds that special something to brown ales, IMO.

Anywhere from 5-12% or so can be Victory or Special Roast. Look at one of my American Brown Ale recipes, it was very good, with or without the oak.
