woah - I read the first line of the grains as being 76 lbs of Pale Malt at first..... then I came to my senses.

Probably best to give your mash temp/time as that will have an effect on attenuation, but it looks good to me - I'd be willing to try a pint or two/three.

Looks like you're on to a pretty bleedin' tasty beer!

The only thing I'd change is to move all of the flavor/aroma hops to one big addition at flameout. But that's my preference; YMMV.

Cheers!

Bob

I think I'm gonna alter this a bit and change the Crystal 40L to Crystal 60L to deepen the color a bit. Any thoughts?

It'll deepen the color (a bit) and change the flavor (slightly).

I say Go For It!

I was raised in Lewistown (Mifflin County). I now live on the banks of the Delaware, as east as you can be and not be in New Jersey.
