I never got good attenuation out of liquid malt, so I would cut back on the crystal to 8-12oz, but thats just me
It's a little big for a Bitter, but not a Special Bitter and it should be good with all the EKG's and Fuller's yeast

Looks like a tasty Special/Best Bitter to me. I'd drink the heck out of that. Good thing you live in Florida!

I just brewed a Mild this week. Maybe if they open the "Alley" after the fire we can meet and swap some.

Special Bitters don't have aroma adds or dry hopping, generally. Looks fine for a Pale, though.
