Thoughts on CaraBohemian in an IRA

Thought it might replace some or all of the crystal, and give some flavor depth.

CaraBohemian is a caramel/crystal malt. Most anything that begins with "cara" is. It ranges from ~64 to 84 degrees Lovibond and adds strong caramel and biscuit notes.
Beer is my bucket list,

You changed a lot more that the carabohemian.

There is less gravity, eliminated the Munich malt, less roasted barley, added chocolate malt, and changed the caramel malts and their amounts.

I would say it’s a much different beer now.

Tho OG was a bit strong for style, so that is why I dropped the Munich.
The other changes are pretty drastic, I agree....New World Disorder

and I am sure it will change again, my beers evolve, you are along for the ride with me...

I think it looks quite tasty, but what yeast are you going to use?
