Default First Partial Mash Coming Up!

So, I picked up a 2-gallon Rubbermaid cooler and am picking up the remaining parts to slap together a mini-MLT tonight. I now have to attempt my first PM, but don't know what to make. I want to make a "tried and true" recipe with a grain bill that utilizes flavors that would be difficult (or impossible) to achieve with extract brewing.

As a side note, I'm not a hophead. I prefer to roll on the malty side of things. Brown, red, and English pale ales are my favorites, but I wouldn't mind making something different. There are a few restrictions I have however. I can't do full boils; my stove can only really handle 3-3.5 gallons. I also don't have the means to do cold fermenting, so lagers are out.

I'm open for any suggestions! Just want to make a great beer for my first PM!!

Hmm, I don't remember the last time I had a Pete's Wicked. I don't even remember what they taste like. Consider me interested anyhow though; I'd like to take a look at the recipe.

An oatmeal stout would be interesting, but I cringe at the thought of licorice. I really, really hate black licorice.

Ok, Pete's Wicked!

OG 1.053
FG 1.012
IBUs: 20.6

1/2 pound Vienna Malt
1/2 pound Crystal 60L
1.75 pounds 20row
1/4 pound chocolate

Mash for 45 minutes at 155 degrees in 2.5 gallons water. Remove grains and bring to a boil.

5.5 Pounds LME

I made this about a year ago, and it was good! I used Windsor yeast.

Yooper, looks good. I'd like to try this one too. What's your boil volume? Or better yet, what's your target IBUs?

TIA

That boil volume was 2.5 gallons- I followed the recipe exactly as written. I don't know the IBUs- that was before I had brewing software. I can run it through the beersmith software later tonight, though. (My daughter is on my computer and I'm using my husband's without the software).

It was actually pretty good. I'm more of a hophead now but I remember it being very enjoyable.

I edited the recipe to reflect the IBUs.
