Default My first recipe...legit or $hit?

This is my first attempt at formulating my own AG recipe. Any thoughts or suggestions? Has anyone here used Simpson's Golden Naked Oats before? Do they have to be milled? They are pretty small so I would probably have to adjust my mill to get a decent crush on them.

Thanks for the input.

The recipe looks pretty good to me but I suppose I would try to get Marris Otter malt if it was available. The proportions seem fine though and you don't have to crush the oats at all, just add them to the mash.

I probably would not use Nottingham for a Brown ale and prefer English ale yeasts.

Yeah. For this I was formulating from ingredients I already had. I think next time I'm going to get a sack of M.O. instead of 2-row. I haven't used it yet but I think I would like the maltiness it gives.
