so i wanted to do a dual brew day. already had one recipe ready to roll, however i wanted to grab another one because i pretty much had the apt all to myself all day and night.
So right after waking up, i went to the brew shop and just tossed together a 4.5lb recipe for a 3 gallon brew (i know the system i'm using will be right around 1.040 pre boil for 4.5lbs)
so i grabbed
2lb 2 row
.5lb of belgian biscuit... or so i thought... till i got home, crushed the grain and mashed, an hour later i open the top of the tun and i realized a mistake i made in my tired state.... i grabbed Belgian special-b which is right next to the biscuit.
had 2oz of centennial, so i kept the same hop bill and went with about 30ibus of centennial.
but instead of a toasuty/biscuity pale. i'm now stck with what i think is gonna be a lightly hopped low OG amber?
"147° L. An extremely dark caramel malt with a sharp, almost toffee like flavor. It will impart a heavy caramel taste and is often credited with the raisin-like flavors of some Belgian ales. "
