Default Brew Day set for tomorrow. Founder's Breakfast Stout Clone, Suggestions??

So tomorrow I'm going to be brewing the common Founder's Breakfast Stout Clone recipe that is found both on here and on BYO. I am wondering if anyone has any suggestions or issues that they have run in to when brewing this clone? I know it is a fairly common beer to clone so just trying to avoid any issues that there may be beforehand. Thanks!!

I used half as much coffee as listed in the recipe and for me it's still a little bit heavy on the coffee taste. It's mellowing as time goes on. All in all it's a great recipe and I've been enjoying it immensely!!!

Agreed. Less coffee.

I don't really mind the coffee taste in the original but maybe I'll dial it back a little so it's not overpowering the whole beer. Thanks guys!
