Batch 219, Panama Red

We've been gone since last October, just got back to the world 2 days ago, so of course I had to brew some Panama Red. Unfortunately, my prior planning was a bit off -- I thought I had enough 2-row, but I was short a few pounds...

10 gallon batch

17 lb 2-row
To make up for the 3.25 lbs I'm missing:
2.5 lb pilsner
.75 lb british brown
And the usual:
1.25 lb Crystal 60 (short 1/4 lb, but I think the brown will compensate)
.25 lb chocolate malt

Mashed at 150F, which is lower than usual, so this might come out a bit drier that I'd like, but oh well.

2 oz Mt Hood, FWH
2 oz Centennial, 60 min
2 oz Cascade, 30 min
2 tsp Irish Moss, 15 min
2 oz Mt Hood, 5 min
2 oz Cascade, 5 min

Wyeast 1272 from last August, did a 2 qt starter that looked really good.

OG: 1.061, 1,058 actual
FG: 1.015
