I'd probably increase the choco and caramel malts and move the 15-minute hops to ten minutes.

Your mileage, of course, may vary.

I'll go ahead and move the hops, I bought and crushed the grains already, though. Thanks!

looks good and the hops at 10 or 15 should be okay in my opinion.

Thanks, I'm going to move them to 10, little less bitter, and it'll drop the IBUs down a bit, according to Beersmith its slightly over-bittered.
