Good call on only using 1oz of Roasted Barley, it can easily over power a beer when not used in moderation.

I really like cara-munich, it's sort of a cross between C40 and C120 and lends a really nice red color. I brewed a fresh hop red with C40 and Cara-munich and it turned out really nice -- best beer to date.

I don't see a 60 minute addition on your hop bill. I'd throw in an ounce of magnum for a smooth, subtle bitterness.

I haven't been able to source caramunich locally, but I've been keen to try - may have to order some online.

What about the FWH simcoe addition?
