Default Looking for simple Amber suggestions...

I would like to brew a rather simple AG Amber.

Any suggestions?

Naively, I am thinking of taking a single malt+single hop beer recipe as found around the forum, and just adding one more grain (crystal or such?) to make it an Amber, or American brown..?

If you like the Bells amber, and want to go for a match, you could use Centennial hops, which are used pretty exclusively in their beers iirc. Good stuff!

It's amazing what a nice Single Malt and Single Hop recipe can do! My best beer was a blonde SMaSH, but now you've got me thinking it's time for an amber .

Let me know how it turns out, I just converted it for you last week using beersmith, so I haven't done it this way yet.
