That should work...

The stuff I use is ~340-450L...

Also, if you're efficiency is higher than ~70-75%, consider dropping the 2-row to 8lbs. The last time I made this I ended up with an OG of over 1.060 which is getting a little out of style...

Great, I want the chocolate to come through and didn't want to decrease it at all. I've been hitting 73-74% the last few brews so I should be ok. Looking forward to this one, thanks for posting.

Nice! Thinking on modifying this a bit with some brown sugar and caramel in the boil? As a nice winter warmer style. Thoughts?

I'm looking to do a brown ale and I like the way this recipe looks. I'm trying to scale it down to a ~3 gal batch.

However, I'm finding I'm calculating a different predicted OG than you state using your 5 gal recipe and grain bill. At 70% eff, and a 5 gal batch size, I'm getting an OG of 1.064, not 1.054. I'm new to this so am I doing something incorrectly?

Nope, I'd bet the recipe is entered into the calculator at 5.5 or 6 gallons to account for trub or transferring loss. Most people do this so your end product is 5 gallons.

Smooches.
