Ya I would drop the roast and the chocolate and just the debittered black malt. This is a tricky style but the best description I have heard is that if you drink it with your eyes closed you should think it's an IPA with some hints of roast. Sounds like your debittered malt would be similar to Carafa 3.

You are right in step with how my CDA turned out and it was wonderfully delicious. This looks great.

What yeast are you using? I went with Denny's favorite 50. I also used 8 oz midnight wheat with no crystal.

+1 for the black wheat. I used 8 oz in a 10g batch and it has the nicest foamy tan head you ever saw. My grain bill was only 2-row, de-bittered black 550L, And black wheat. Very slight roast flavor with a Nelson and Citra hop explosion.

I made a BIPA (American) using
Caramel 120 at 10% and
Chocolate at 6%

Added the dark malts to the mash with 15 mins to go.

After pouring in a glass I notice that it's a brown IPA not a black IPA.

Perhaps next time I should mash the dark grains a bit longer.
