The grain selection and percentages look solid. The only one that stands out is the brown malt. I'm not sure if you will really see much of a difference with that amount. It looks like about 4% of the grist? Mash temp, yeast, ABV all look like they relate well too. Looks like you are expecting just less that 70% attenuation?

Thanks for the feedback. As far as my attenuation/ABV, I'm just going off the projected 1.016 finishing gravity from Beer Smith. Wouldn't surprise me if it finished another couple points lower though.
