Hey guys, I finally decided to take a crack at making up my own recipe instead of using a kit. I'm shooting for an easy drinking American Pale Ale with some nice citrus in the finishing hops for summer. Here is what I have so far.
5 lbs. extra light DME (LD Carlson)
.5 lbs Crystal 20
.5 lbs Crystal 40
.25 lbs Munich malt
1 oz 7.6% Cluster (60 min)
1 oz 5.0% Cascade (flameout)
I was originally planning on Citra and Simcoe but LHBS had neither, so I substituted. I am pretty set on using these two hops now since I already bought them but advice on amounts and timings would be much appreciated. As for the specialty grains, I just kind of looked at a few recipes and picked some stuff I knew I had or could get.
What do you guys think? Too much crystal?
