Sounds good. What OG are you aiming at? Have you seen old recipes like this one?

I often describe dark mild as a very weak dubbel without the Belgian yeast. Dark without roast
flavours, gentle hopping, light body, fruit from sugar and yeast.

I don't know why you guys don't mix beers. We have classics like half and half or mother in law
that you can ask for in the pub. I really like a half and half of mild and bitter...

It looks good to me. Probably more my thing than a Baltic (which are more clean, malty,
sweetish). I'd go ahead with it, specially if you can replace the Special B. I like the 29SRM
as well and the la...
