Hello All,

I'm working on a Brown Ale, my first of this style. I was torn between the Northern English variety w/ its classic toffee notes and the American version, with it's slightly more aggressive hops. Looking for some critiques on my recipe. Hoping to brew this weekend.

7 lbs, 8 oz Pale Malt (2 row, UK)
1lb, 8 oz Brown Malt (UK)
1lb Crystal -60L
8oz Chocolate Malt
4oz Biscuit Malt

.75oz Willamette @ 30 min
.50oz Willamette @ FWH
.50oz Centennial @ 60 min

Wyeast British Ale II (#1335)

Mash 60 min @ 152, Batch Sparge @ 168

Like I said, this is my first attempt at this style, so all feedback/suggestions - most appreciated.
