1oz Challenger (8.2%AA) @ 60 minutes
.25oz EKG (5%AA) @ 60 minutes
.5oz EKG @ 20 minutes
.25oz EKG @ flameout

Wyeast 1968 (harvested from a mild I'll be bottling soon)

The grain selection and percentages look solid. The only one that stands out is the brown malt. I'm not sure if you will really see much of a difference with that amount. It looks like about 4% of the grist? Mash temp, yeast, ABV all look like they relate well too. Looks like you are expecting just less that 70% attenuation?

Thanks for the feedback. As far as my attenuation/ABV, I'm just going off the projected 1.016 finishing gravity from Beer Smith. Wouldn't surprise me if it finished another couple points lower though.
