Hey guys, I had a Left hand last weekend and loved it. Now that my primay is empty I'd like to brew up a clone of Left hands milk stout. Searched around the forum and found nothing but All grain recipes. Tried to covert it over in Beersmith and I don't think it looks right.
Here is the OP.
And here is what Beersmith gave me.

Does this seem right, or not? Can anyone come up with something better? Or should I just say screw it and buy the Midwest cream stout kit? The only problem with the midwest kit is, I'm not to sure it it will turn out sweet enough.
