Try some crystal 60 or other sweeter crystal malt in there. Or you could try some honey malt.

You used a lot of two high AA hops. I'd recommend cutting the amounts by 25% and adding in an oz. of a good aroma hop like EKG, willamette or fuggles.

The bitterness will mellow, but it might take 6 months or more.

What were the boil times and did you calculate an IBU?

No, I dont have boil times, IBU's, etc.. I cant find my paperwork, probably thrown away by my exwife. I had the recipe saved in an old email. The ingredients in my previous thread is what I have to work with. So whats everyone think. When and how much of each hop would you use if faced with this problem. Chinook And Northern Brewer?
