I would drop the black malt, you don't need it. Increase your chocolate to about 4 oz, same with the crystal. Any particular reason you're using a Polish hop often used for Baltic porter for what is essentially a British beer? I would replace the Lublin with either Cascade or Golding, or even 1/4oz of those Willamettes.

just when I didnt think I'd get any feedback. The grains just came out of the pot, but as to the hops. I can still make the change to hops.

I dont have goldings, so I was just experimenting with the Lublin. Any more feedback? I still dont know if I want to dump the lublin!

I have a lot of the lublin and I'd like to start using it. The cascade, I have, but still perfectly sealed like it came from freshops.

Cheers and thanks for the ongoing feedback. The 25 quart pot is going strong on the propane burner, so we should see boiling soon and then the hops go in... so I've got about 20 minutes to decision time.

At this point, just go with it. I'm sure it'll be good.
