Looking for feedback on my proposed Robust Porter recipe. I'm not convinced on the hops but I intended to have clean bittering with authentic English style flavor and aroma additions.

FWIW, Your recipe is pretty close to the one I brewed last weekend.

Size: 5.5 Gal
OG: 1.065
FG: 1.016
IBU: 28
SRM: 38

9.5 lb MO malt
1.0 lb Munich malt
1.5 lb Crystal 60L
0.5 lb Black Patent
0.5 lb Chocolate

1.5 oz EKG (4.75) 60 Min
0.5 oz EKG (4.75) 5 Min

I used WLP002 with a 1.5 L starter.

I considered using Magnum as bittering hops, especially since I grow those and have a couple of pounds in the freezer. BUT I really like the EKG in my Porters and Browns where I'm trying to keep it authentic. It should be a minor issue for bittering either way.
