Grind finer, get a second 5g cooler, line your coolers with 5g paint strainer bags (kinda like

mash. When you...

2nd the brown malt suggestion. Personally, I'd up the gravity and the IBUs. Doesn't seem very
robust to me. I just did one with an 1.065 OG and IBU closer to 45.

I've never boiled longer than 60 minutes on any of me darker Belgians. I'd say only a Tripel
would need a 90 minutesDMS doesn't affect dark beers?

I'd keep it super simple and use all Belgian pale malt, ~1.070 and take it down to 1.010 or

ramp the temps ...

Brewing 11g of my Witch Hunter Light (1.070, down from 1.104) porter right now. Just hitting
