Take EVERYTHING except the 2-row & hops, then use one-half of the amounts you've listed. Seriously.

I think it'll be too sweet, too malty, too spicy, and you'll have a very stuck mash. You can always add spices into the secondary, but you can't subtract. With mine, I used 2 tsp pumpkin pie spice plus some ginger, and IMHO it's just right.

p.s. you'd probably get better responses in the Recipes forum.
