So my last two brews were the hoppy amber from here and the dirty honey blonde. Im a pretty consistent brewer, just not quite to the stage of feeling confident completely formulating my own recipes from scratch.

Iw ould like to make something between a pale and an amber. Not too hoppy, maybe around 30 IBUs or so, with some bready biscuity flavor. The amber that i made was delishous, so if i dont get some feedback i may jyst modify that one and post up for some feedback on what i get there.

Ive got 1/2 lb honey malt left over that id like to work into the next batch, honey amber sound good?

I really like dennys fav so ill likely be using that for yeast. Does what im describing fall into english style more?

Thanks in advance for any feedback or pointers.

RonJon

just some quick messing around with beersmith, this is what i came up with, I'll likely take out the flameout hops additions if they don't seem needed for the style. And if you guys (or gals) see someone i could work in the 1/2 honey malt, or something to substitute it for would be cool.

Recipe Specifications
--------------------------
Boil Size: 6.52 gal
Post Boil Volume: 5.98 gal
Batch Size (fermenter): 5.00 gal
Bottling Volume: 4.60 gal
Estimated OG: 1.059 SG
Estimated Color: 17.3 SRM
Estimated IBU: 40.7 IBUs
Brewhouse Efficiency: 72.00 %
Est Mash Efficiency: 82.8 %
Boil Time: 60 Minutes

Ingredients:
------------
Amt Name Type # %/IBU
8 lbs Pale Malt, Maris Otter (3.0 SRM) Grain 1 71.9 %
1 lbs Caramel/Crystal Malt - 40L (40.0 SRM) Grain 2 9.0 %
1 lbs Munich Malt - 10L (10.0 SRM) Grain 3 9.0 %
8.0 oz Biscuit Malt (23.0 SRM) Grain 4 4.5 %
8.0 oz Caramel/Crystal Malt -120L (120.0 SRM) Grain 5 4.5 %
2.1 oz Chocolate Malt (450.0 SRM) Grain 6 1.2 %


0.50 oz Magnum [14.00 %] - Boil 60.0 min Hop 7 22.6 IBUs
1.00 oz Centennial [10.00 %] - Boil 10.0 min Hop 9 11.7 IBUs
1.00 oz Cascade [5.50 %] - Boil 10.0 min Hop 8 6.4 IBUs
1.00 oz Cascade [5.50 %] - Boil 0.0 min Hop 10 0.0 IBUs
1.00 oz Centennial [10.00 %] - Boil 0.0 min Hop 11 0.0 IBUs

What i might do is drop all of the hop additions to 1/2 OZ where they are 1 OZ, and Beersmith says that will put me right at 31 IBUs with a .533 IBU/OG

Ok, for anyone who comes across this, i'm going to do something very close to this recipes and use it as a learning experience as i change the hop additions to fuggles / EKG for 15 and flameout(for a future batch) here's what i'm going to brew.

Style: American Amber Ale
TYPE: All Grain
Taste: (30.0)

Recipe Specifications
--------------------------
Boil Size: 6.52 gal
Post Boil Volume: 5.98 gal
Batch Size (fermenter): 5.00 gal
Bottling Volume: 4.60 gal
Estimated OG: 1.059 SG
Estimated Color: 13.7 SRM
Estimated IBU: 30.3 IBUs
Brewhouse Efficiency: 72.00 %
Est Mash Efficiency: 82.8 %
Boil Time: 60 Minutes

Ingredients:
------------
Amt Name Type # %/IBU
8 lbs Pale Malt, Maris Otter (3.0 SRM) Grain 1 72.7 %
1 lbs Caramel/Crystal Malt - 40L (40.0 SRM) Grain 2 9.1 %
1 lbs Munich Malt - 10L (10.0 SRM) Grain 3 9.1 %
8.0 oz Biscuit Malt (23.0 SRM) Grain 4 4.5 %
8.0 oz Caramel/Crystal Malt -120L (120.0 SRM) Grain 5 4.5 %
0.50 oz Centennial [10.00 %] - Boil 15.0 min Hop 8 8.0 IBUs
0.50 oz Cascade [5.50 %] - Boil 15.0 min Hop 7 4.4 IBUs
0.50 oz Cascade [5.50 %] - Boil 0.0 min Hop 9 0.0 IBUs
0.50 oz Centennial [10.00 %] - Boil 0.0 min Hop 10 0.0 IBUs
1.00 oz Willamette [5.50 %] - Boil 60.0 min Hop 6 17.8 IBUs

Any input is still always welcome, but i don't see any reason why this won't make a tasty brew.
