I would suggest that you drink it first, see what you think and if you THINK there is an issue, then ask for help/feedback. At this point its just a recipe and there will all kinds of opinons on it...

True.  I am still learning the different grains, so I wanted to see what others thought about how those grains interplay in the recipe etc.  Only another couple weeks until I can taste.  It's always so difficult waiting.

Looks OK. Cleaning out your grain supply?
