I'm brewing the recipe below, which is an ESB by Evan!. I modified it based on what I have, so some things are different. Other than those changes, does anyone have any comments? I mashing high because I want to balance out the higher attenuation of Nottingham. The mini decoction will also help maintain some maltiness...

Ingredients Amount Item Type % or IBU
6.75 lb Maris Otter (Crisp) (4.0 SRM) Grain 79.41 %
1.00 lb Munich Malt - 10L (10.0 SRM) Grain 11.76 %
0.25 lb Biscuit Malt (23.0 SRM) Grain 2.94 %
0.25 lb Caramel/Crystal Malt - 20L (20.0 SRM) Grain 2.94 %
0.25 lb Caramel/Crystal Malt - 80L (90.0 SRM) Grain 2.94 %
0.50 oz Magnum [12.00 %] (60 min) Hops 23.0 IBU
1.00 oz Tettnang [4.50 %] (10 min) Hops 6.2 IBU
1.00 oz Goldings, East Kent [5.00 %] (1 min) Hops 0.8 IBU
1.00 items Whirlfloc Tablet (Boil 15.0 min) Misc
1 Pkgs Nottingham Yeast (Lallemand #-) Yeast-Ale

Mashed @ 156F for 45 minutes with mini-decoction

Beer Profile Estimated
Original Gravity: 1.044 SG (1.040-1.048 SG)
Estimated Final Gravity: 1.011 SG (1.008-1.012 SG)
Estimated Color: 9.1 SRM (5.0-16.0 SRM) Color [Color]
Bitterness: 30.0 IBU (25.0-40.0 IBU) Alpha Acid Units: 6.0 AAU
Estimated Alcohol by Volume: 4.39 % (3.80-4.60 %)

That looks great to me- almost chewy from looking at the recipe.

Welcome back to brewing! (Does that mean you can now drink some of your beer?). You're NOT getting your books back, though!

Yes I can drink beer as long as I pace myself. No more druck for me, but I can still enjoy that wonderful taste...

Or your IC, burner or BB. However, to show I am the magnanimous sort, I will bring it all to Jersey so you can visit.

Welcome back.

Thanks man, but I'm brewing in the minimalistic style now. We'll see how long that lasts...

I'm thinking you need a brew club or someting...somewhere that you can go and share your beer and experience...that way you'll not get piled under with beer.....not like that's a bad thing.
