Default How much Crystal is in Flying Dog Pale Ale?

For those who have tasted Flying Dog Pale Ale how much Crystal malt do you think they use, and what color?

I just tasted my last pale ale and it is not as malty as I would like.

Here is the recipe

8# 2 row
2# vienna
1# carapils
1/2# crystal 10

The Flying Dog web site says they use Crystal 120L; says the beer is 36 IBUs and 5.5% ABV:

But there's also an "official" homebrew recipe floating around that suggests Chocolate and Crystal 90L; IBUs on this one are 45, and ABV based on the 13.0 OG and 3.5 FG works out to 5.1%:

Hey md134 - I asked the same question here once...

http://www.homebrewtalk.com/showthread.php?t=36544

Anyway, I made the recipe almost exactly like the recipe on the flying dog wordpress blog only I didn't use any chocolate, I used only Cascade hops, and I used Safeale US-05 for yeast. It turned out really good and I doubt anyone would be able to tell the difference.

Something like this... 9# 2 row, 1# Crystal 120, Cascades, US-05 nice, simple, and very tasty

Actually on examination... using that recipe makes a beer that is too red. I think if you go with that recipe and use 1# 80-90L you will be right on the money though.
