Special Roast substitution (Punkin' Ale)
Hey all, I am getting close to picking up all the ingredients for my Birthday Brew Bash and I ran into a bit of a snag.
The recipe I'm looking at for a Punkin' Ale (supposedly a DFH clone) calls for Special Roast, which LHBS does not carry. The closest thing I can see to a substitute is Victory; both are aromatic, biscuity and toasty.... but Victory adds some nuttiness. Will that end up being a problem? If so, what's a better choice?
Here's the recipe:
10# Pale 2-row
1# Crystal 60L
1# Special Roast
1oz Hallertauer (60 min)
1oz Hallertauer (5 min)
US-05 Dry Yeast
Victory is a little lighter than Special Roast. You might try finding a time/temp chart to roast your own. If you can't find anything, Victory will probably do the trick, it just won't give you the color.
I'd love to roast my own too but I don't have a crusher consider LHBS does it for me. OH WELL! :mug:
EDIT: Derp! I'm dumb.... simple solution: replace Special Roast with Victory and replace Crystal 60L with Crystal 80L... same color!
same color maybe, different flavors. I'd stick with victory and not mess with your crystals.
