I like the simplification and elimination of variables. It would be interesting to have a bottle of each to do a side-by-side comparison. If you go ahead with it please post your findings.

I used the Challenger per your recipe and was very satisfied with the flavor profile of the beer. I think the malt bill is spot on. Perhaps our tastes don't differ all that much because it seems we...

Yup. Simplified the process by going with a single infusion mash and batch sparge. Subbed 1 lb. MO for 1 lb. #2 invert.
