The closer to 1.008 you are the safer you can feel. If it reads north of 1.015 I'd be concerned.

I'm assuming the Maris Otter is an extract? You could increase the ratio of MO to Pilsner. That will get you a little more nut flavor. You could also throw some brown malt into your specialty...

It actually turned out more bitter than I would have expected. Considering the size of the beer, it's surprisingly well-balanced. I expect the malt to dominate over time, but right now it's still...
