Notes

Don't dump the nibs into the kettle - use hop bag. Same with Beans and wood chips

Try to add the flaked oats on top of the mash don't mix in too much to avoid stuck mash

Could substitute a slightly larger amount of pale chocolate malt for the standard chocolate; about a quarter to half pound more.

Brewer's Friend recommends 3.49 gallons of water for sparge, but kettle volume was a bit low. Next time use at least 4 gallons.
