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!

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!

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....
