+1 on that.
Just did this recipe with an OG of 1.090 (used molasses instead of brown sugar) and it is black as sin
Put a 1 liter starter of mixed cooked DME, water and WLP004. 5 days in with just a nice even layer of krausen... No blow off tube necessary. No bad smells, and no fusels from lag time. Use a starter, watch your temps. When yeast are pissed, bad **** happens to your beer.
Nice aromas in the steeping grains BTW! This is gonna be a good one, thanks for the recipe.
