dude, that's way too much crystal malt. I would choose one crystal and use it lightly. You don't want it being too sweet ... which is why you're adding the simple sugar.

Agreed, far too much Crystal. Perhaps a small amount of victory or an even smaller amount of Munich for a touch of color and flavor. I would stick with about .5-.75lbs of Crystal 40-60L, go with 40L if you add Munich.

Nix the crystal 60 and 120. Use 1/2 to 3/4 lb. crystal tops. Cut the corn sugar down to 5-6% of the recipe. Mash at 153. Cut the bittering Columbus to 1 oz, boost the late additions by 1/2 oz. each, and finally double the dryhop.
