From the OP:
Batch Size (Gallons): 5.5

Yes, it is a 5.5gallon batch size, usually I scale it up to 11 gallons just because it tends to go fast in my house.

I will amend the recipe to reflect origin and maltster.
Crisp doesn't show a chocolate malt of that color on their website. On top of that, 625L is really dark and would likely be more roast malt like instead of chocolate. Are you sure you're mis-quoting Lovibond for EBC? 625 EBC would be a light chocolate with a color on the order of 240L.

Yes, it looks like you are correct, I got my figures from the LHBS where I get my grains and did not ask if it was L or EBC, should have caught that one! thanks for picking that up!

You are going to love it! I usually brew this 10 gallons at a time now because it is such an easy drinking beer, and one that all my friends enjoy as well.

I have all the grain on hand but I am short 2 ounces on the chocolate and short 8 ounces on the crystal 60. I can make up the diff with either more MO or with Honey malt or a combo.
Thoughts ?

Or I can just run out and pick up what's needed.
