Default Advice on this recipe - ABA Extract

I'm still a complete noob this will be either my 4th or 5th batch, depending on brew order. Im shooting for a light color brown ale and a distinct American Hops signature in an American Brown Ale.

If you're shooting for a light colored brown, don't use the dark DME, use light DME. You'll get plenty of color from the crystal 80

Thanks for the suggestion. I just put that change in beersmith and it comes out to be 17.3 which is puts it out of the BJCP range for an ABA but thats ok, just me and my buds drinking this

I also messed up and didnt put the right boil volume in and my IBUs dropped down to 24.5. I might put the Goldings in for 40min.

That is a lot of Crystal/Caramel(could be sweet). I would put maybe 1lb and add some more color with some chocolate. Just me though.

Would .5 -.75 lb chocolate add that much chocolate flavor? I wanted to stay away from Chocolate flavors in this batch.

Maybe 1/5lb.

I agree with whoever said to use all light extract. with 1 lb 80 and 1/5 lb chocolate you should be in range.
