What do you guys think ? Will their be enough crystal malt to back up the hops....cheers:mug:
Ohhh yeah I forgot to add in the 2 1/2lbs of sucrose to the recipe
dude, that's way too much crystal malt. I would choose one crystal and use it lightly. You don't want it being too sweet ... which is why you're adding the simple sugar.
i would remove 0.5-1lb of crystal and add some vienna or munich, for hops instead of 20 do 15 min
Nix the crystal 60 and 120. Use 1/2 to 3/4 lb. crystal tops. Cut the corn sugar down to 5-6% of the recipe. Mash at 153. Cut the bittering Columbus to 1 oz, boost the late additions by 1/2 oz. each, and finally double the dryhop.
Thanks for the replys just wish they were a little sooner :( I went ahead and brewd this beer already .I guess ill have to ride it out and see how it comes out and learn from my mistake hopfully it still drinkable.
