IMHO

I would give the flaked barley a miss.
This looks like it will be big FES or a RIS.
It looks allright but you want to sub 1kg of LME for an extra 1kg of Ale Malt or Vienna (vienna should add to the malt profile/flavour)

Hope this helps...

add some wheat malt or extract

Would try to add in another Kg ale malt and 500g amber malt. Mash the oats and leave the whirlflock for a lighter colored beer

I hope everyones sitting down. :eek:
Drum roll please :lol
I agree with GMK!. ......................now that doesn't happen everyday. :huh:

Everything looks good SJW, like what had been said already use as much pale malt as you can and try keep the extract under 60% of the fermentables.

How did that happen? am i dreaming? i really do agree with GMK :blink:
Cheers Jayse
