It seems like a lot of crystal to me, and I'd cut the crystal 60L in half (carastan is basically the same thing.). I like a little bit of darker crystal in mine, like .25 pound of 120L, but that's just my taste. I think .5 pounds of chocolate is too much- that would come across as pretty roasty to me. I'd go wtih .25 pound or less of chocolate.

So take out the Medium dark crystal and replace it with Extra dark Crystal 120L?

I wouldn't replace it one-for-one, though. I think it's too much crystal. I'd go with something like .5 pound of the medium (60L) and the same amount or even a bit less of 120L, like 6-7 ounces.

I LOVE the pale chocolate malt! That's a great replacement.

The only further suggestion I have is to consider moving the 30 minute fuggles to earlier in the boil. I might like more like 18-20 IBUs in that beer.

I increased it to 1 oz at 60 mins and kept .5 oz at 30 mins which gave me a IBU of 20.

That sounds perfect! I wish I could be there to drink it- it looks like a great mild!

Looks great. Brewed my first mild at the end of summer and had it for this fall - it was a great beer to drink Similar recipe. Brewed it again about 4-5 weeks ago, and it should be on tap later this week One of the more popular brews with my friends as well.

I dont have any of my equipment on me right now and I have no cash so I have to wait a while before I can brew anything. This will definitely be my first all grain brew though. Any thoughts on how I should mash it?
