So I'd like some critical comment on this recipe for what I'm calling Funday Brown Porter. Too much residual sweetness? Too roasty? Too much going on? I'd rather have more chocolate than coffee. What are your thoughts?

Comments on the yeast and the hops additions? Tone down the hops anyone?

That's a big old mess of specialty grain, I think it's just going to seem very muddled. Only 64% (including the Munich) of base grains?

I'd take a good look at every one of the grains and make sure you have a good reason for using it. There's a lot of overlap with the flavors you'll get from each of those malts, you could probably narrow it down and get a much simpler beer with cleaner flavors. And you can always compare it to a "proven" brown porter recipe like Jamil's in BCS.

I think Jamil's recipe is 10 lbs MO, 1 lb Brown Malt, 1 lb C45, 10 oz choc malt.
