Belgian Specialty, I think

Well, got up this morning, planning on brewing a good old-fashioned American IPA with 9 lbs of 2-row, 1 lb of crystal, and 3 oz Amarillo…except I discovered too late I had no crystal and just shy of an oz of Amarillo…so started rummaging. Revised plan, because plans and recipes are mere guides…
9 lbs 2-row, 1/2 lb Special B, 1/2 lb flaked oats, .25 lbs chocolate…mash at 152 for 90 minutes. Sparge and collect 6.5 gallons onto 1 oz Galena (13.2 %AA) - first wort hop.
Boil for 45 minutes, and toss in 1 oz cascade, 1 tsp Irish moss, 2 lbs cane sugar, and 1 lb Belgian candi…15 minutes later, cut the heat and add 0.8 oz Amarillo and 1 oz dried orange peel. Will pitch T-58 when temp gets to around 75-ish.
My poor man’s brew calculator says this should be about 1.082 OG (don’t know - no hydrometer again) and about 55 IBUs, with a dark caramel complexion…
So…planned American IPA is turning into Belgian India Brown…yes, I just invented another new style! Woo hoo!!
