The "4-40" Amber ale or....?
Myself like many others play around with different recipes and I just put this together.
I was trying to get something like this:
ABV 5.7 %
And when I did the recipe looked like it had been put together to get a name including the number 4
So what would it be? An Amber Ale or an Amber Rye Ale or.....
7.4 gal batch
8.3 gal. boil
31.3 % 4.40 lbs. American Two-row Pale
31.3 % 4.40 lbs. Malted Rye
31.3 % 4.40 lbs. German Munich I
3.1 % 0.44 lbs. American Crystal 60L
3.1 % 0.44 lbs. American Crystal 120L
76.2 % 1.60 oz. Amarillo Whole/Plug 6.9% for 60 min. 26.0 IBU
23.8 % 0.50 oz. Amarillo Whole/Plug 6.9% for 22 min. 5.2 IBU
Yeast US-05 @ 57-61°f
So not even worth a comment :p
Please help a fellow homebrewer out understanding its grain bill :D
I find one of the funnest things to do when making recipes, is to occasionally forgo style guidelines, i believe there are many amazing beers that have come from this practice.
In most commercial breweries, i beleive they usually use about 10%- 18% rye. wiht ten percent being jsut for a dry finihs to compliment hops, and 18 being a tad of the spicyness, if i were doing it i would personanly go with somewhere around 25%.
BYO has some great articles on amber recipe formulation and has an alright one on the use of rye, if no one comments atleast those may be more help than i can.
