Looks good. Consider using a dry English strain, such as WLP007? It will dry your beer out similar to CalAle, but leaves a nice character and flocs better.

Cheers!!

That looks like Jamil's Robust Porter recipe from BCS, so you should be fine. We used WLP007 in ours.

Primary for 2 weeks, condition for 3. That ought to do the trick
