Nice. I am assuming that is a 10 gallon batch, or your efficiency is kinda low.

I brewed an Amber Ale Saturday that is similar (6 gallon):

10.0lbs Pils Malt
1.00lbs Vienna
1.00lbs Crystal 60L
1.00lbs Flaked Corn
0.50lbs Corn Sugar

US-05

Sterling and Saaz

OG 1.056

It is quietly bubbling away at 60*F.

Any reason why you FWH and have 15 min additions? I'm a rookie when it comes to FWH, but I would think you would just move all 20, 15 min additons to FWH.

You might want to replace the black patent with chocolate...The BP could be too harsh for this beer.

I'm trying to keep the BP in small enough a quantity that it makes no noticible impression on the flavor. As I understand FWH and late additions affect the hops differently, I'm not 100% sure myself.
