I ended up making the following changes and brewed this!

I subbed out the Special B for Crystal 120L, and 2 lbs piloncillo for the 24 oz of molasses- which I thought might bring up the ABV slightly, however my gravity reading was lower than intended (1.060). Maybe I had some poor efficiency.

It smelled fantastic as it was brewing, and the vapors out of the airlock make me want to stick my head in the carboy. This is going to be good!
