Thanks for the responses! I have actually since tweaked the recipe a little more which has balanced it out. I used Yooper's Ruination clone (http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f69/ston...-clone-155771/
) as the base and tweaked the steeping grains to make it darker (see below)...Quick question though: Would you advise sticking with the DME Yooper uses? If not, how much LME should I be shooting for? 4.5 as originally stated?
