Yeah, Special Roast is 50L and Victory is 28L. Meh, not necessarily trying to clone it perfectly. I was just worried that the nuttiness would come forward too much and cover up other important flavors like the pumpkin and pumpkin pie spices.
I'd love to roast my own too but I don't have a crusher consider LHBS does it for me. OH WELL!
EDIT: Derp! I'm dumb.... simple solution: replace Special Roast with Victory and replace Crystal 60L with Crystal 80L... same color!
