Default Is this normal.

I'm new to AG and will be trying my first this weekend. I came up with my own batch of chocolate oatmeal stout and I was wondering if this is normal or would even work. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

3.5 lb. Maris Otter
3.5 lb. Crystal 120L
1.5 lb. Rolled oats
.25 lb. Chocolate malt
.25 lb. Roasted barley
2 oz. 5% fuggles (60 min)
.50 lb. Lactose (10 min)
4-8 oz. Cocoa powder (10 min)

way too much C120. cut that back to a lb or less. as is, you will have a very high final gravity and thus would be way too sweet, i think.

It generally not a good idea to make your own recipe for your first Ag batch. You don't know how different ingredients play with each at this point and a horrible recipe could ruin an otherwise perfect brewday and discourage you from AG all together thinking it was your process.There are plenty of FANTASTIC proven recipes here to choose from. Just my suggestion. You are of course to do what you like.
