I would switch the Black Patent to 5 oz and the Roasted Barley to 9 oz. to temper the bitterness. That BP can take over if used too liberally. You still want to be able to taste the other flavors.

70 seems warm for that yeast. I'd try to keep it 64 - 68 to avoid fusel alcohol production.

Still, brewed as proposed, you'd get beer - big beer, and most likely I'd help you drink it.

I love RIS - Big is beautiful!

the 9oz Black Patent actually works in this ...
I originally was doing 5oz Black Patent with 4oz Black Barley
but then decided there was no difference and made a merger haha...
