I think that's a fantastic idea!

I've brewed this with North American 2-row pale malt with no additions and liked it fine; I just think the result with the Maris Otter is better. Note that Victory will do its own thing, and will likely in that quantity go out the other side of Maris Otter crackery, nutty flavor. In a beer like this, the flavors provided by the base malt are by no means obvious. If you only want the characteristics of Maris Otter you'll be missing, I suggest reducing the Victory to 4 oz or so. Use the 12 oz you have planned only if you want a distinct Victory character to the beer.

Good luck!

Bob

Cool, thanks for the advice. I haven't tried an "amber" malt addition for the purposes of mimicking a British pale ale malt before, so I guessed on the quantity. I'll probably do the 4 oz as you say, and switch the rest of the addition back to 2-Row. The praise on this thread is enough to make me not want to mess with the recipe too much!

I split the difference on the Victory addition, so ended up with 8 oz of that on top of the original recipe, but I'm sure it'll be great. Also subbed out the Amarillo, opting for 8.2% Centennial instead.

20 minutes left in the boil now, and this is a beautiful beer -- actually my first dark all-grain, and it looks and smells gorgeous. Milling that chocolate and black malt this morning was a nice way to wake up.

Can't wait for this to be ready. Good thing I've got 15 gallons of other stuff ready to bottle downstairs. Thank god for the pipeline.

Americanize it! Bitter with Centennial (adjust for IBU) and finish with Cascades. It'll be different, but I think it'll be nice!
