Looks great! As for your concerns, if you don't like the astringency, stick with the Carafa II. I think the Crystal vs. CaraMunich is personal preference. I like CaraMunich myself. My only other input would be maybe a lower mash temp. Good luck and have fun. Cheers!

Aging in the keg should get you pretty similar results. I would also suggest storing it cold.

I recently heard John Palmer and Gordon Strong speak on this topic. Both of them said it was basically a waste of hops. You get almost zero isomerization. The only benefit was filtration and "rice hulls are cheaper." They then went on to say that First Wort Hopping was the better option. Hope this helps. Cheers!
