I'm looking for a good ESB extract recipe and I'm thinking of trying this extract version (created by pmoe) of Biermuncher's all-grain 'Captain Hooked on Bitters' recipe:

.50 oz Williamette [4.60%] (20 min)
.50 oz Tettnang [6.50%] (5 min)
Not sure how to go about steeping the specialty grains. Maybe 1.5 gallons for 30 mins @ 155?
For those who tried this extract version, how did it turn out? I'm thinking of adding 6 pounds of LME instead of 5, but otherwise the recipe sounds good. Also, would victory work for the toasted malt?
Thanks in advance for your replies.
