Hi, I'm trying to finalize my recipe. All feed back is greatly appreciated.
Ok, I've used the biscuit for the great flavor it brings, then the cara-pils for head retention, and finally the aromatic malt for the wonderful nose. As for the hops,I'm going for a lighter hopped spring type smell.(if ya know what I mean) Well, thats it thanks again for your comments

This looks good. On the higher end for OG, but not high on the IBUs, so it should be very drinkable. Nice choices on the extra grains - not excessive quantities, just right. Let us know how it turns out.

Thanks for the feed back. Do you think I should lower the gravity a bit?
