Default American Stout

I think I will brew a stout this weekend. I am trying to build a recipe from what I have in stock. I came up with this and was hoping for some feedback.
Do you think I will end up with a stuck sparge with the rye and wheat? I know it is a bit on the hoppy end, but I do like hops. Any suggestions would be welcome.
Thanks

I don't have AG experience, so I can't answer the sparge question, but this sure sounds tasty! The only thing I might do is save the last hop addition for dry hopping, but that's all personal preference.

I'd cut the chocolate rye down to a half pound and add a pound of roasted barley. I've never used chocolate rye, so I can't offer feedback there. Also, the hopping is interesting. I'd go with a more common citrus hop near the end. I prefer columbus in this style, but chinook, centennial, cascade all work well.

I love the style and try to brew my American stout a couple times a year. I've got a tried and true one in my recipes section, if you want to check it out. It scored a 38 last year.

Thanks for the feedback. I was a little worried about all the choc rye, so I think I will sub with some roasted barley. The recipe I base this on did use the roasted barley and it is probably the way to go. The hopping was more "what do I have that needs used" but I also have a 1/2# of chinook. I will try that instead. I appreciate your comments.
