I usually use 6 gallons of sorghum or rice syrup(Annapolis home brew) as a base (5-6 gallon batch) and I always use about 1-3 lbs of crused roasted grain (Quinoa (malts nicely), Millet, or buckwheat. I also use about 1-2 cups of molasses. sometimes I substitute the molasses with brown suger, honey, or blue agave. As for the sweet and citrus taste in the previous reply, try using different hops and use much more bitter hops w/high alpha acid. I always bitter with high alpha acid hops. the only time I get citrus taste is when I dry hop with Chinook for an IPA. Otherwise, I find that my beers are excellent if you bitter hop a little extra. for a 5 gal batch, I would use high alpha acid hops, 1 to 1.5 oz to bitter, 1 oz to flavor, and 1/2 oz for Aroma. For an Ipa, I bitter w/ high alpha acid hops (1 oz for 90 min), (.5 to 1oz for 60 min), 1 to 1.5 oz 30 min for flavor, 1 oz for 5 min for aroma and then I dry hop with 1.5 oz of leaf.
