While I was looking through my closet I found some Chocolate Malt. Figured it would be a perfect excuse to brew a Brown Ale. Here is what I came up with using the advice in Daniels' book for grist ratios and hopping. How does it look?

Don't see than carapils is needed in this recipe but looks good.
My brown porter had a very similar grain bill only slightly bigger with .5# chocolate and it came out great.
