Default Robust Porter Recipe

I would like to get a little feedback on this recipe. I haven't brewed in a couple of years and am feeling a little rusty. I will ferment at 62 as that is the temp of the room it will ferment. I kind of like the cleaner finish the lower temp gives. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Thanks! I was curious if you guys thought the 152 temp on the mash was too low for a porter?

152 should be ok, though checking my recipes in BeerSmith the ones I have entered (From BYO, etc.) all call for 154.

You have plenty of crystal in there, you could go either way with mash temp depending on how you like your porters.

I wasn't thinking about the crystal being unfermentables. It's amazing what you forget when you walk away from brewing for a while. I was considering adding some lactose, when I rack to the secondary, but maybe I'll just ride this one out.
