Default Greenbush Brewing Distorter

Took a weekend trip to Michigan and just had this beer. It was great. Here is a description...

http://www.greenbushbrewing.com/beers/distorter.htm

So now, I'm trying to put a clone together of course. Any thoughts on this?

5.5 gallon/AG

mash 152

13 lb maris otter
1 lb crystal 60L
8oz chocolate
4oz roasted barley
4oz black patent

2oz EKG 60 min
1.5oz williamette 30 min
1oz cascade 5 min

WLP001

That put IBUs at 49 and color at 34 L, not quite right on with their description. I had problems getting the color down and cutting too much roast (it was a pretty roasty beer). Did I cut too much?

Since these guys are friends of mine I can tell you I love this beer, unfortunately I can't help you more specifically though, they do keep certain things under wraps LOL! I believe they use a English Ale Yeast but I'm not sure. I do know they use a lot of Maris and I think they try to keep an English style for their base and this beer was designed to be more of a porter than a stout. I think you have a pretty good start and if you drop the black patent a bit you;ll get the color better. Curious to know how this turns out for you! Scott is a pretty accessible guy, you might try emailing him the recipe and see if he gives you any input

Must be some great friends to have! Thanks for the advice. I'll check back with results when I brew it, but it probably won't be for a few months. I have a few others in the pipeline.
