Help with my first all grain recipe
Does anyone think this looks about right for an Amber?
10lb 2 row
8oz crystal 80L
1oz Willamette at 60,20 and 5 min each
Is the Cara pils unnecessary because of the wheat?
Yes, I would leave out either the carapils or the wheat. Personally, I don't think you need the carapils. The wheat will help with head retention and the crystal 80 will give you some body. (You might also consider mashing at a higher temperature -- say 154-155).
I think you are a bit light on the hops. Consider bittering with something like Northern Brewer, then adding an ounce of Willamette at 30 & 15 each, and dry hop with another ounce of Willamette.
If you are looking for a more "English" flavor, consider WLP002. If you want more of that west coast style, consider dryhopping w/ Cascade or Centennial.
Just some suggestions. If you make your beer as is, it will be very good.
Thanks for the input. Good advice.
