Beer Recipes / Re: critique my first all grain

No worries Johnathan. I've been doing this about 5 months.  Wasnt much of a beer drinker until I met ol man Newcastle. Been looking for the Ale ever since by my own hands.  Me and buddy have been coming up with receipes and going to town.  He is very technical on what he says and does, so the feedback on the terms is the norm for me.  I was just amazed after the glacier went it on what it did.  I like caramel and a dark red look so that is why I went with the receipe. My buddy on the other hand likes an extremely dark beer and his last batch came out good.  3 more weeks fermenting and I will give this one a try.  I currently have the Scott Wee Heavy in the Carboy "bubbling" away and another extract kit of Caribou Slobber going to town. It is turning out real dark and ready to bottle next week. So long story straight....we are doing all grain and extract kits at the same time.  All grain in the kegs and the extract in the carboys.

Cheers,

Gregg

Thanks for the feedback.  Would it be too sweet or just off setting with the receipe as is.
