The Conrad, looks good except for the amount of biscuit malt. I'd warn that a little goes a long way. It adds a bittering flavor. I would suggest cutting it down to .5 lb as it could be your most prominent flavor at the rate you currently have.

u were right on the money with this, and it hurts. 5days in the carboy, and i pulled a sample... f-ing smells like toast and tastes a little like it too... ARGH, if you'd only gotten to me sooner.... INTERVENTION.

Yeah Man, a little goes a longgggg way. I feel your pain!
Been there ..Done that

Best I can offer at this point is to Dry hop the SH!! out of it. If your keen on hops this might get you by. Spicy toast!

Default spicy APPLE toast

Its kinda funny, cuz i used WLP Burton, which is notorious for Apples, so i actually have like a Burnt Toast with Apple Butter aroma, it would be interesting and mildly pleasent if i had been expecting it, or if i had not brewed the beer and already had expectations for its taste.. ya know. Ill quit whining about it now....
