You could definitely throw the brown malt in, all of it, but keep the Special B far, far away. Looks awesome, recipe-wise.

Do you really whirlpool an hour at 194.4 F?! Seems like an invitation to make a lot of DMS.
I do not whirlpool an hour lol
thanks for noticing will change on the recipe sheet.
And will also put the brown malt in there

Don't worry too much about DMS. It's an issue in clean flavoured beer. It's a stout. It wouldn't be noticed there, sounds a good recipe.

In my experience, the whirlpool addition won't shine in the beer, because all the dark malt in there, probably will be subtle.

Anyway, please, don't forget about us and share the taste notes of it.

Good luck!

Looks to be a wonderful Porter!
That Brown Malt works wonders in them.

The only thing I notice, the 1 package of US-05 is skimpy. Maybe it's just a placeholder?
My (BeerSmith) recipes always show that too: 1 package of the selected yeast, regardless of size or gravity. The actual amount pitched is always calculated with BrewUnited's.
