Lets make all the grain amounts in ounces. Your 2 row would then be 24.9 ounces. it has been suggested a number of times on HomeBrewTalk that you should limit the Crystal malts to no more than 10% of the grains. Let me do some quick calculation....10% of 24.9 would be about 2.5 ounces of Crystal. What do you think of your recipe?

Well, you are going to have a hoppy beer. ~90 IBUs, and the later hop additions are really going to give you a heavy hop taste.

That being said, if you are into big hop beers, then go for it.

As for your malt profile, 30% of your grain bill is crystal malt. While there is no official rule out there that determines how much crystal should be in your recipe, 30% is the highest I have heard of. Although, some people use as much as 20% and report good results (http://hbd.org/brewsandviews/message...tml?1080512319). But who knows, maybe you'll want some extra sweetness to balance out that hop bitterness.

Ultimately, I agree with this.
