    Finally going to get a brew session going.
    I went a little off the ingredient list so I'm not sure what style I will technically be brewing.

    My grain bill is:
    8lb Marris otter
    0.25lb simpsons chocolate
    0.25lb crisp amber malt
    0.25lb crisp brown malt
    0.25lb English dark crystal
    0.25lb English extra dark crystal
    1oz fuggle (60min)
    1oz fuggle (0min)
    London 3 yeast

    Would this still be a mild ale or is it a horse of a different color?
    Any help in identifying would be great.

    Unless you get a really low mash efficiency, that's going to be more like a Brown Ale than a Mild. Looks like it could be tasty though.
  3. What is your final batch volume? 5 gallons or so?

    @ 75% eff and 5 gals, your around 1.050. Looks like a nice English Brown Ale.
