Default Help with my recipe

Hi, I'm trying to finalize my recipe. All feed back is greatly appreciated.

This looks good. On the higher end for OG, but not high on the IBUs, so it should be very drinkable. Nice choices on the extra grains - not excessive quantities, just right. Let us know how it turns out.

Thanks for the feed back. Do you think I should lower the gravity a bit?

I agree that it looks good. It ought to be sweet, but not too simple or cloying.

Thanks TexLaw. What if I add another .5 oz of centennial for fifteen min. to balance it out a little more? Or should I leave it alone?
